Your Daily Lick: Damn Handsome and the Birthday Suits

Despite the awkward band name, the puzzling album title, and amateur artwork, Damn Handsome's music is absolutely worthwhile. The San Francisco trio's four tunes draw deftly from pop-punk and glam rock, like Green Day circa 1995 crossed with Green Day circa 2005, spitfire included. Even the "Tainted Love" cover is salient and smart.

At the Rockit Room (406 Clement St., San Francisco) on May 11. 8 p.m., free
