The rough-edged pop-punk of Buffalo’s Goo Goo Dolls no longer sounds as much like the Replacements as it once did, but it still has that band’s energetic tunefulness. Opening are Smoking Popes, whose crooner-punk style is pretty durable, even if ‘HFS has worn out “Need You Around,” and You am I at 10 p.m. at the 9:30 Club, 930 F St. NW. $9. (202) 393-0930. (MJ)
