There's just no faking the sort of unbridled exuberance that bursts forth from Portland punk trio Hey Lover. How awesome are these guys? The husband and wife that make up two thirds of the group played Hey Lover's first show following their own wedding. That had to have been the best wedding reception in the history of the form. With regards to their music, Hey Lover work almost exclusively in rowdy blasts of endorphin-sapping punk. The video for their song, "Piranha," displays this quality very well, in addition to their blatant disregard for their instruments' well-being, as they thrash around in a pool with their guitars and drums, shouting ecstatically about how they're gonna eat ya'. Hey Lover is the kind of band you want on your side - fighting, partying, or a combination of both.

HEY LOVER, w/ Anteek Junkees, Various Moods, Heads Out the Window, 8 p.m., Bob's Java Jive, 2102 South Tacoma Way, Tacoma, $5, 253.475.9843
