‘70s punk group the Avengers have reunited to tour in support of the re-release of their self-titled album. They’ll be performing cuts such as “Thin White Line” and “The American in Me” to crowds full of old punk lifers. Even though singer Penelope Houston pursued a folk career at one point, she has no problem belting out her classics. See them at the Brighton Bar in Long Branch on Aug. 5. 8 p.m. $12. 18+.
