POP PUNK | The Menzingers 

A band like The Menzingers is probably the best possible outcome you can hope for when a generation of kids raised on ska-punk and Asian Man Records starts their own bands. While the Philly-based act's first few records are unabashed in their Less Than Jake and early Against Me worship, it has truly come into its own over the last handful of years. The wonderful "On the Impossible Past," released in 2012, is a fan-favorite, but last year's aching, tremendous "After the Party" is the real star of the band's catalogue, which surges with a polished-yet-sunburnt maturity that calls to mind Off With Their Heads but with a less alarming drinking problem.

The Menzingers will play with Made Violent and On the Cinder on Friday, May 25, at the Montage Music Hall, 50 Chestnut Street. 7 p.m. $20-$23.;
