The Ataris at the Camel 

Wednesday, Oct. 3

Known for simple yet clever and catchy pop-punk songs, the Ataris were a big name in the underground punk scene of the late ’90s. The band created a number of successful independent albums, including the popular “Blue Skies, Broken Hearts... Next 12 Exits” before making the leap to a major label with 2003’s “So Long, Astoria.” Tracks such as “In This Diary” and a cover of Don Henley’s “The Boys of Summer” made the group successful on MTV and the modern rock charts. Not much has been heard from the Ataris since. The group’s darker, rock-based 2007 effort, “Welcome the Night,” was poorly received, and new album “Graveyard of the Atlantic” has been delayed for years. Here’s your chance to find out what the group sounds like now: In May 2011, lead singer Kris Roe promised to play 18 new songs on tour. Hear these new cuts as well as some classics when the Ataris perform at the Camel on Wednesday, Oct. 3, at 9 p.m. $10-$12. thecamel.org.
