Quintino will be opening up the night. Music starts at 6 p.m., the cheaper tickets are sold out but $45 level ones are still available at midnitesociety.com or via ticketfly.com.

MUSIC: Bremerton, Washington pop-punk mainstays MxPxhave been at the game for so long, Clinton-era fans who grew up with their infectious brand of pretense-free punk now have kids of their own. That the band is still together, rocking out is a testament to its tried and true punk-rock appeal. MxPx shares the stage with Unwritten Law at the Water Street Music Hall (204 N. Water St., waterstreetmusic.com, 7 p.m., $15-$18) on Sunday night.

MUSIC: Saturday night is special this week: we get to do a little time travel magic and fall back an extra hour. This might mean extra sleep for some of you, but it also means an extra hour of partying it up! One Nightclub (1 Ryan Alley, facebook.com/1Nightclub) will be celebrating with a Plus One! Party, technically staying open until the wee hours of 3 a.m. Cover is free until 11:30 p.m., so get down early and marathon the night away.
