Smoking Popes

Twenty years into their career, Chicago rockers Smoking Popes have come up with their first concept album, This Is Only a Test, which is delivered from the perspective of a teenage rock wannabe as he navigates heartbreak, loss and other high school travails. While it’s a new way of writing for the band that first burst on the scene via tours with like-minded acts like Jawbreaker and Jimmy Eat World, the sound is sure to remind long-time fans of why they got into Smoking Popes in the first place: ragged-yet-perfect riffs, heartfelt lyrics and a potent live show. The Hang Ups open the show. The Urban Lounge, 241 S. 500 East, 9 p.m., $12
