The venerable California alt-rock quartet Redd Kross's recent reunion — they split in the late '90s — has been a welcome one. Here's a killer live band with spirited songs that still have plenty of life left in them. Along with an infectious back catalog, they have a brand new record, Researching the Blues, due out on Merge in August. This show should not only be a nice look back at a band who never really got their due, but also a glimpse of where they'll take their sound in the future. With Mannequin Men and FMWired. 18+
