SOCIAL DISTORTION

Tuesday: With its high-revving garage-rock sound and Southern Californian low-rider aesthetic, Social Distortion is the rare First Avenue mainstay that’s also well-suited to the biker clientele frequently seen hanging out in the lot used for Cabooze Plaza concerts. It’s also one of the few ’80s punk bands that hasn’t lost its grit or might, with haggard-sounding frontman Mike Ness getting more impressive with age. His continually changing lineup now includes David Hidalgo Jr., who’s previously played with his dad’s band Los Lobos. “Nuggets”-evoking Tennessee trio Cheap Time and former Loved Ones singer Dave Hause open. (6 p.m. Tue., Cabooze Plaza, 917 Cedar Av. S., Mpls., $30, eTix.com.)
