Heartthrobs? No, it's 5 Seconds of Summer.

5 Seconds of Summer

Kinda like the anti-One Direction in that they're version of bubblegum pop is more like chewed-up gum covered in lint and hair, pop-punk boy band 5 Seconds of Summer is as punk as calling Scholastic CrimeStoppers about that joint in Timmy's lunchbox. In their mega-platinum hit "She Looks So Perfect," one of the Aussie teens proclaims that his girl looks perf in "my American Apparel underwear," in a way that seems like he thinks his cheekiness is as anarchic as tagging dirty words onto Cinderella's castle in Disney World.

Also, he probably gets a small fortune for his American Apparel namedrop. On the flipside, if singing slightly naughty lyrics to a screaming fanbase of prematurely angsty 10-year-old girls isn't punk rock, I don't know what is. 

Ticket prices range from $29.95 - $79.95 and the show starts at 7:30pm.
