Tuesday, February 3
Here’s a show that will set your brain a-sizzling. New Orleans’ duo Caddywhompus, aside from the brilliant name, is remarkable for its ability to turn gray matter into jelly with its mathy, noisy, mildly psychedelic and totally righteous brand of arty indie rock. ATX’s Boyfrndz, for its part, makes experimental psych-rock with prog-rock tendencies and an uncommon knack for sweeping and jarring soundscapes. Support will be provided by SA’s own Bright Like the Sun, whose dynamic brand of post-rock truly blossoms on the band’s forthcoming sophomore album, and Ants, who make hard-edged, improvisational, post-shoegaze music. $5, 9pm Tuesday, 502 Bar, 502 Embassy Oaks, (210) 257-8125.
