Your Daily Lick: Serenity Now

The members say they take cues from Nirvana, but Serenity Now isn't necessarily anything Kurt Cobain would seek out were he still around. When Erik Fong sings The long way to suicide is a short swim and low tide, you get the sense he's fudging a bit - which is a good thing considering the subject matter. It just goes to show that the band's aspirations fit better with the mainstream pop-rock scene.

At Blakes on Telegraph (2367 Telegraph Ave., Berkeley) on Apr. 11. 9 p.m., $10
