Thursday, March 11.

While its last two albums have faced mixed criticism, it's difficult to deny Jet's contribution to the resurgent popularity in garage rock in the early 2000s. Alongside the likes of the Vines, the Strokes and the White Stripes, the Australian rockers made a huge first impression with their 2003 debut, “Get Born,” in large part because of the commercial success of their single, “Are You Gonna Be My Girl.” Pumping out plenty of skuzzy AC/DC swagger and Oasis-influenced balladry, the cocky quartet is nothing if not resilient in its devotion to simple, shredding rock 'n' roll. Performing with openers the Crash Kings, Jet plays the Hat Factory on Thursday, March 11, at 8 p.m. $17-$22. 788-4281.
