Doris Henson

To everyone who’s been sleeping on the local rock scene like pothead seniors: The makeup music SAT is Saturday night at the Hurricane. But even the A students should be excited about this tremendous local bill. Three of the city’s hands-down-best bands — Doris Henson, the Golden Republic and Roman Numerals — are not only playing the same show but also taking turns kicking out three-song sets (kind of like those alternating math-English-essay sections). But instead of desperately trying to make your calculator figure out how much money Jorge’s lemonade stand grossed last summer, you can break open a can of beer and enjoy three bands that are better than many national acts you’d pay $35 to see. School bell’s a-ringin’, kids — don’t be tardy. — Jason Harper
