Every so often, a song comes along that makes you feel like its writer just gets it, and "Knock Me Over," by Michigan rock outfit Cheap Girls, is one of those songs. As frontman Ian Graham sings in his deadpan voice the acerbic line: "My grip is just falling away/ I'd do anything to lose the pain ... I let the world just knock me over," it's easy to mentally file the song away under "Stuff to Listen to When I'm Feeling Shitty." And that's one of the cool things about the band's latest album, 2014's Famous Graves: The music itself is crunchy, no-frills rock that's all guitar riffs and punchy percussion, but at its core are thoughtful lyrics about life in all its frustrating, depressing, confusing glory. Also on the bill are Restorations, Chris Farren and Hard Girls. (Kolbie Stonehocker)
