Rock Sick Puppies

Saturday: This Australian trio earned notice back in 2007 with the song "All the Same" and its memorable "free hugs" video, which has since racked up more than 74 million views on YouTube. They have gone on to record a series of major-label albums, including this summer's "Connect," which entered the Billboard charts at No. 17, a new record for the group. Rock radio has embraced Sick Puppies, too, making hits out of "You're Going Down," "Odd One," "Riptide" and "There's No Going Back." Pinwheel and Battlefish open this 93X-sponsored, low-priced gig. 8 p.m.; Mill City Nights, 111 Fifth St. N., Mpls.; $9.37; 888-929-7849.
