Formed as a band of high-school friends in Chicago circa 1997, pop-punkers — emphasis on the pop — Plain White T's worked the road relentlessly for 10 years before being blessed with platinum status and two Grammy nominations for the melancholy gem "Hey There Delilah." Not to be outdone by itself, the band followed with "1,2,3,4," in 2009, and "Rhythm Of Love" in 2011. Both of those tracks went platinum as well.
Plain White T's play the UR Douglas Dining Hall on Friday, March 21, at 9 p.m. $12-$20. Rochester.universitytickets.com.
