The Randies

9 p.m. Monday, January 29. Off Broadway (3509 Lemp Avenue).


From their birth in a bowling-alley-turned-nightclub in LA to their contributions to the soundtracks of MTV's hottest teen shows, the Randies haven't strayed from a simple but successful formula: unbridled pop-punk that's sharp and snotty. Of course, when such music is sung and played by three comely vixens, it's a hard combination to resist. Along with a dude drummer, the ladies in the Randies pile up vocal kiss-offs and guitar licks, paying homage to both Lita Ford and Johnny Ramone.
