Weekend Watch: Four Year Strong
Saturday’s all-ages Four Year Strong show at The Aquarium, 226 Broadway in Fargo, could be a back-to-school show, but it’s really more of a back-to-the-’90s bash. The Worcester, Mass., punks set aside their hardcore tendencies on their July release, “Explains it All,” to focus on covers of songs that first got them into music. The five-piece mixes it up on versions of Sugar Ray’s “Fly” and breaks down No Doubt’s “Spiderwebs.” The group will probably play their own material as well, but we’ll see if openers Crime in Stereo, Fireworks and A Loss for Words pull out some covers of their own. Tickets are $10 in advance or $12 the day of the show. (701) 235-5913.
