8 p.m.
Indie Rock, Punk, Rock

Dig out your plaid khakis and re-pierce your septum, because Warped Tour legends NOFX are returning to Minneapolis. The L.A. pop-punk pioneers are touring behind October’s First Ditch Effort, their 13th LP over their 33-year career. Throughout the ’90s and ’00s, NOFX redefined what punk means to suburban shopping-mall kids, and now the Fat Wreck Chords standard-bearers are out to test how that angst has aged. Fat Mike and the boys are on the road for yet another nostalgiafest featuring New Orleans newcomers PEARS and fellow vets Useless ID, both of whom will open at the Cabooze. After the pogo dancing and crowdsurfing, still-hungry punks can join the 11:30 p.m. after-party at Triple Rock, which doubles as an after-party for Sound Unseen’s Minnesota premiere of documentary A Fat Wreck (5 p.m., McNally). You can study ahead of the show(s) with April’s autobiography NOFX: The Hepatitis Bathtub and Other Stories, which documents Fat Mike’s battles with drugs and alcohol.
