Rushmore Academy/ Princeton

Before overindulging on fowl and football on Turkey Day, be sure to gorge yourself on music at Mississippi Nights the night before. The young punker-snappers in Rushmore Academy utilize ADD-addled synths and racing riffs for maximum new wave-emo effect. (Picture Motion City Soundtrack's younger brother, only over-stimulated and wound up because his Ritalin prescription expired.) Princeton's claim to fame thus far is featuring ex-Story of the Year member Greg Haupt — and for blanketing the city with posters announcing this show. But judging from the tunes (found at www.myspace.com/princetonrocks), the quartet takes as many cues from the zippy geek-punk of the Descendents as it does from modern keyboard jokesters like Bowling for Soup.
