Greasy Riffs 

After a brief misstep into white-boy blues, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club returns to gassed and greased rock 'n' roll form with Baby 81, the Los Angeles trio's fourth album. Though not quite as dirty as the band's much-heralded debut, Baby 81 nevertheless sees the leather-clad boys employing the trademarks that put them on the map: distortion-soaked reverb, foot-stomping acoustic intros giving way to torching guitar riffs, and choruses with clenching hooks. Expect plenty of drunken fist pumping when the band returns to its birthplace, playing with the Fratellis at the Fillmore on Wednesday, May 9. 8 p.m., $28.50.
