SAVING JANE
9 p.m., Juanita's. $10 adv., $12 d.o.s.

You might remember Saving Jane from a few years back. The Columbus, Ohio, band landed the single “Girl Next Door” on the Billboard charts, on MTV's “TRL” and on one of those insipid “Now That's What I Call Music” albums. The song, an anthem of unabashed jealousy (“She is the prom queen, I'm in the marching band … She's Miss America and I'm just the girl next door”), helped the band get picked up by Universal Records, which co-released the group's follow-up, “One Girl Revolution.” On the title track, lead singer and songwriter Marti Dodson seems to be railing against the pop-marketing machine that feeds on nearly naked ladies, with lyrics like “You don't even stand a chance/I'm not taking off my pants.” The band brings its shiny pop-rock to Juanita's for an all ages show. Junior opens the show.
