Live Tonight: Benefit For The Philippines With The Redwood Plan

Benefit for the Philippines With The Redwood Plan

From the first note of Green Light Go, The Redwood Plan lets you know you’re in for a wild ride. The dance punk quartet’s sophomore album opens with “Panic On,” whose cinematic bass riff accented with trumpets immediately brings tense, exciting chase scenes to mind. Lead singer Lesli Wood (formerly of Ms. Led) has a Debbie Harry–like voice, full of both attitude and charm, that’s effective at rallying the troops to dance, especially in “We Are the Team” and “It Goes Something Like This.” Though there are a few ever-so-slightly softer moments (“The Scenery & Melody,” “The One”), for the most part, Green Light Go is The Redwood Plan at its most high-energy, and the band doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon. Proceeds from this show will help the Philippines rebuild after typhoon Haiyan. With PonyHomie, Gems, Hearts as Thugs. Chop Suey, 1325 E. Madison St., 324-8005, 8 p.m. $10 suggested donation. 21 and over. AZARIA C. PODPLESKY
