Monday To-Do: Plain White T's



7 p.m., the Village. $16-$20.

Oh, the kids will flock. With earnest lyrics of love and loss, sparkly punk-pop hooks and hipster haircuts, the Chicago-based five-piece has recently ascended into the modern rock pantheon. After laboring in emo clubs for the last decade, two years ago, their weepy ballad “Hey There Delilah” got nominated for two Grammys, and the band's made the rounds on all the late night shows and on the soundtracks of all the teen-soap TV shows and in the pages of all the music mags that matter. On their recently released “Big Bad World,” the T's forgo trying to follow-up “Delilah” with another acoustic-ballad, instead focusing on the pop-punk that's formed the cornerstone of the group's success for years. Local pop collective Bear Colony opens with Box Wine.
