Viet-Ruse Reunion Show 

Out of commission for a couple years, Viet-Ruse return with a New Year’s resolution to tune up and get down. Founded in 2008, the Chicano punk quartet laced their compositions with a political awareness on the street and international levels. Like their sonic heroes, The London Calling-era Clash, Viet-Ruse’s great achievement was keeping a light tone despite the subject matter and keeping their songs rooted in the realm of dance. For a primer, visit the 2012 effort Para Bellum — an energetic punk amalgam from the mind of frontman Myke Miranda. With Grupo Frackaso, Los Callejeros de San Anto, Villains. $3, 8pm, Hi-Tones, 621 E. Dewey St., (210) 785-8777 -M. Solis
