The Maxies

When: Thu., Sept. 22, 8 p.m. 2016

The Maxies want you to know two things: 1) They're from Nuuk, Greenland, the home of the 2016 Arctic Winter Games. And 2) they're the greatest band in the world. Granted, neither of those claims is actually true, but the SoCal sextet is undeniably entertaining in a vulgar pop-punk kind of way, complete with messed-up Mexican wrestling masks, IT-guy fashion sense, and a crowd-surfing mascot named Bi-Polar Bear. Signature songs include "Clubbin'," whose subject matter they are quick to disambiguate. "We are not talkings about visiting happy nightclub or meat market bars of filthy United States," they explain on their official YouTube site, "but rather we are talks of hitting cute seals over the head with wooden club so you can eat the nutritious and delicious seal steaks." Juvenile, yes, but then maybe you are, too. 8 p.m., Triple Nickel Tavern, 26 S. Wahsatch Ave., $5, triplenickeltavern.com. — Bill Forman
