With a house full of industry-types on hand, the band ignited songs from its debut Interscope release as well as several new tunes, adding a fire and excitement to the music that’s missing from the otherwise solid album.

This Orange County group has been a big local draw for some time now, but Thursday’s show here will go a long way in making No Doubt more of a national attraction.

And it’s hard not to like a band who, save for singer Gwen Stefani, shaved their heads before the show just for fun.

Opener “Get on the Ball,” the infectious “Let’s Get Back” and the cool time changes of “Ache” were album cuts particularly effective at getting the kids jumping.

Band’s interesting hybrid of funk, rock and ska, supplemented by a horn section, is a unique, fun sound that should find much support in today’s alternative-aware music scene.

Though some of the songs are a little simple and, at times, derivative, the band’s youthful zeal and obvious enthusiasm make those criticisms easy to overlook.
