Bowling For Soup, Feb. 9, The Venue 

Texas-based Bowling For Soup has scored hit singles in its 15-year history, most notably "1985," "High School Never Ends" and "Girls All the Bad Guys Want," which received an out-of-left-field Grammy nomination in 2003. Not bad for a band that pop punks its way through latent teenage angst.

"Yeah, I sing about real life," says vocalist Jaret Reddick. "I obviously exaggerate things to make it more interesting. But I sing about movies and TV and just things I grew up on. Things that affect us every day." Things like high school.

"High school definitely, to me, sets the tone for the rest of your life," he says. "High school never ends. I've been saying that statement for 20 years."

In other words, the quarterback stays the quarterback, the prom queen stays the prom queen, and the president of the chess club starts Microsoft.

Tuesday, Feb. 9, with Just Surrender, Stop Drop and Party, 3rd To Last; 6 p.m., $12 adv., $14 door. Venue, 521 Broad St., boisevenue.com.
