  • Poptart Mokeys plays Saturday night at the final Peabody Rivertop Party of 2011.

POPTART MONKEYS
8 p.m. Peabody Hotel. $5.

Florida's Poptart Monkeys don't go in for subtlety or nuance. The band plays hybrid pop-punk party music, kind of like the lovechild of Sublime and Blink 182 on day five of an MTV Spring Break bender.

Check out the band's song "Choke Yourself," which, to be clear, is in no way an endorsement of auto-erotic asphyxiation: "Worried about your brain / just save your mental health / tonight my hands won't work / you'll have to choke yourself."

The band's central message: Why don't you just chill out, brah? So check your brain at the door, have a good time and knock back a drink or three while taking in the splendor of the Arkansas River and enjoying one of the city's biggest, most diverse party scenes.

Epiphany emcees the good times at the final Peabody Rivertop Party of 2011, so don't miss out.
