Offbeat Combination


Goo Goo Dolls, CBGB, 315 Bowery, at Bleecker Street, East Village, (212) 982-4052. Few sounds in rock are quite as cathartic as that of loud melancholy. Back in the mid-80's, the Replacements perfected it; these days bands like the Goo Goo Dolls are still working on it, loading guitar distortion on top of solid pop hooks and sentiments of post-adolescent confusion. The band's forthcoming album, "Superstar Car Wash" (Warner Brothers), occasionally ventures toward metal or punk, but most tracks, like "We Are the Normal," remain in familiar power-pop territory.The show tomorrow night begins at 8:30; tickets are $10.
