Suoni indulges in some punk rock glory with Toronto’s S.H.I.T. and Silent Age, Exit Order, Odd and Sanction A at la Vitrola. 4602 St-Laurent, 9 p.m., $8/$10

Saturday: It’s just not a regular weekend in Montreal unless Analogue Addiction are presenting a show, and they will definitely crown your weekend at l’Esco with Bodywash, Hot Garbage, Blank Bullets and Kaleidoscope Horse. 4461 St-Denis, 9 p.m., $10

Check out some Grade A punk rock at Piranha with Ol’ School Johnny, the Bombs and Guttrot. 680 Ste-Catherine W., 8:30 p.m., $10
