The Bastard Suns

When: Sun., Oct. 14 2012

It's tempting to dismiss Atlanta's Bastard Suns as a compendium of clichés: ska-punk bluster, skateboard-strewn videos, playful odes to pot and, during one reggae breakdown, a fake Jamaican accent of minstrel-show proportions. Trust me, there's nothing quite like seeing a white boy singing about "de white mon," especially when he's stomping around like he's in an old Shirley Temple plantation movie. But don't sell these bastards short: In their best moments they can sound a lot like the Dropkick Murphys, provided you've had enough Jamesons. Knockout and No Bueno! kick off their 8 p.m. show at the all-ages Black Sheep (2106 E. Platte Ave., blacksheeprocks.com) with tickets going for $10 in advance, $12 at the door. — Bill Forman
