Adolescents Back at Alex’s Bar: SoCal punk icons the Adolescents are always a good time live, but this show means more. It’s a canned food drive for the Long Beach Rescue Mission, which is a great cause at any time and especially over the holidays. Show up early, and watch Low Sounds, Egg Drop Soup, and R0bber.

Simply put, there are very few better SoCal punk anthems than the Adolescents’ “Amoeba.” In fact, that iconic blue-and-red 1981 self-titled debut from which it came is one of the all-time great SoCal punk albums. “Amoeba” is such a mad jam that former Adolescent and co-writer Casey Royer has made it a staple of the set with his band D.I. Of course, there’s way more to the Adolescents that this one song — 2018’s Cropduster was their ninth album and the last with fallen comrade Steve Soto. But you can’t keep this great band down, and this Long Beach gig should be a classic.

Adolescents Back at Alex’s Bar: The event takes place at  8 p.m. on Saturday, December 17 at Alex’s Bar.
