POP-PUNK | Iron Chic

While that header might read "pop-punk," don't fret. Long Island's Iron Chic have nothing in common with the saccharine naivety that hangs over the current scene's most popular bands. In fact, Iron Chic's music aches and roars with the unmistakable weight of real-world emotional experience, and nowhere is this more evident than on its most recent record, 2017's "You Can't Stay Here." Songs like "My Best Friend (Is a Nihilist)" and "Profane Geometry" are anthems tailor-made for when everyone is together, a little drunk off cheap beer, sweaty, and feeling existential — the way pop-punk should be.

Iron Chic will play with The Emersons and On the Cinder on Friday, January 26, at the Bug Jar, 219 Monroe Avenue. 9 p.m. $10-$14. bugjar.com; ironchic.bandcamp.com.
