ROCK: Toast to the Troops 

For years I thought the Good Rats were from Rochester, because the band played here so much. But turns out they hail from downstate. These Long Island barroom rock 'n' roll underdogs have rocked and rolled practically forever — since 1964, to be exact. Their hit "Tasty" was my favorite air-guitar-in-my-underpants tune (replaced for a few years by everything on Cheap Trick's "At Budokan"). The Rats will be joined by Rochester troubadour Dave McGrath and the Led Zeppelin tribute The Sound Remains the Same for this patriotic pre-Thanksgiving show. Proceeds benefit Warriors Salute.

Toast to the Troops takes place Wednesday, November 21, 4 p.m.-2 a.m. at the Main Street Armory, 900 E. Main St. $10-$45. Rochestermainstreetarmory.com.
