ROCK | The Presidents of the USA 

Back in the 1990's, when America had the world by the nuts, Seattle-based band The Presidents of the USA rode a wave of popularity. Sure, bands like Nirvana could eat these guys for breakfast, but who released albums on Election Day or performed at Mount Rushmore?  The Presidents of the USA climbed to the top of the greasy pole but still delivered the goods with plenty of gung-ho enthusiasm. Lead singer and bassist Chris Ballew and company have been parodied by "Weird Al" Yankovic and continue to perform nostalgic tunes like "Peaches," which could get you singing along even if you think it's silly. Nevertheless, the twice Grammy-nominated trio is touring in support of a brand spanking new album, "Kudos to You!"

The Presidents of the USA performs Thursday, August 14, at Martin Luther King Jr Park at Manhattan Square, 353 Court Street. 6:30 p.m. $5. Cityofrochester.gov/pitp; Presidentsrock.com.
