Alkaline Trio, Chicago's long-running purveyors of pop-punk, play the Newport, 1722 N. High St., tonight. Never really had a phase of A.T. adoration, but I do enjoy the title track from their new LP, "This Addiction." Cursive, Omaha indie rockers with a similar penchant for hearts on sleeves, is also on the bill. Kind of a genius pairing if you ask me. Tickets are $20. Doors at 6:30 p.m. The Dear & Departed opens.
