Punk power
Originally formed in 1980, local punk-rock band Naked Raygun -- led by Naperville native Jeff Pezzati -- is often considered one of the most important Chicago-area bands for adding melody to the driving punk beat. The band's recent incarnation, reformed in 2006, has remained a permanent fixture on Chicago's punk scene. Naked Raygun sold out Metro's Saturday show, but tickets are on sale for an added second gig Friday.
