ARTS Pick: The Dexateens

In 2011, Alabama garage rockers The Dexateens were on the verge of a breakthrough when they broke up. The band left an entirely finished album, Teenage Hallelujah, unreleased, sitting in storage, collecting dust and tantalizing die-hard fans for the better part of five years. But Teenage Hallelujah’s moment has finally come, and the band has reunited to play songs—“Eat Cornbread Raise Hell,” “Alabama Redneck,” “Boys with Knives”—that are equal parts punk, rock and a laissez-faire study of life in the modern South.

Thursday, November 10. $10-12, 9pm. The Southern Café and Music Hall, 103 S. First St. 977-5590.
