Now that Dag Nasty has become the model for a whole new crop of pop-punk bands, Dag (and Minor Threat) man Brian Baker’s been won back from the glam-metal junkyard to guitarslinging with Bad Religion, whose sweep and punch (and new major-label affiliation) could well carry it to the stratospheric vicinity of Green Day and former labelmates the Offspring. With Samiam and Supersuckers at 7:30 p.m. at the Black Cat, 1831 14th St. NW. $13. (202) 667-7960. (Mark Jenkins)
