After taking a break from music for a few years after the demise of Jets to Brazil in 2003, punk bard and former Jawbreaker front man Blake Schwarzenbach apparently returned in the mood for something a bit faster and louder. In 2008 he put together the short-lived Thorns of Life, which he described as "a storehouse of fond hatred," and his new band, Forgetters, is a lean, rough power trio in the mold of Mission of Burma, rounded out by Caroline Paquita (ex-Bitchin') and former Against Me! drummer Kevin Mahon—perhaps the most straight-ahead rock band he's led to date. They're touring on their debut double seven-inch, which is rife with Schwarzenbach's polemical disenchantment—the catchiest songs about U.S. foreign policy you'll hear this year. 97-Shiki opens. 17+. —Jessica Hopper
