The Memories

Maybe it’s a case of Athazagoraphobia—the fear of being forgotten—but The Memories are putting out records as fast as Burger, Lolipop and their own label Gnar Tapes can press them. Of course, it helps that the Portland quartet’s tunes cruise in the two or three minute range and touch almost exclusively on the topics of boning and getting stoned. On “Dad’s Not Home,” over a lazy Motown chord progression, Rikky Gage gives the OK for afternoon delight: “Dad’s not home/it’s safe to bone.” In this context, 2014’s Touched by an Angel sounds more like a no-fi handjob joke than the CBS religious vehicle. With LA’s Snow Wite, LA’s Period Bomb and SA’s Oblios. $5, 8pm, K23 Gallery, 140 Fredericksburg, (210) 776-5635, facebook.com/K23Gallery  —Matt Stieb
