Sunday, October 16; Pop's (1403 Mississippi Avenue, Sauget, Illinois)

In the great tradition of the Kinks, Oasis and Nelson, Thrice bassist Eddie and drummer Riley Breckenridge are bandmates who also happen to be brothers. Only they don't fight that much, nor do they even really drink and drug -- and when it comes to passing around groupies, forget it. In fact, the members of Thrice spend a great deal of time reading, appreciating art and working with cancer charities when they're not thrashing their way through post-hardcore epics about impressions, identities and illusions. (Consider Thrice a quasi-neuro-voodoo-proctologist: They not only grab you by the balls; they give your head a thorough once-over as well.) The Irvine, California, bandmates made their major-label breakthrough with 2003's The Artist in the Ambulance and are now supporting their fourth full-length, the enigmatically titled Vheissu.

Doors open at 6 p.m. Tickets are $15 to $18; call 618-274-6720 for more information.
