A band by any other name wouldn’t smell as skeezy. Formed in 2007, synthpop staple Starfucker began as the quasi-joke of founding member Joshua Hodges. While living in Portland, Hodges unwittingly stumbled into a conversation with someone who was openly bragging about sexing up celebrities. Not too charmed with the encounter, Hodges decided to repurpose the phrase “star fucker” with a tongue-in-cheek twist as the moniker of a personal project. As fate would have it, the name stuck. Sometimes stylized as STRFKR, the band produces lively confections that are both danceable and thought-provoking. A prime example is the wildly successful “Rawnald Gregory Erickson the Second.” (If that track sounds familiar, it was probably seared into your brain by a popular Target commercial a few years ago.) With release of the band’s fifth album rapidly approaching, Starfucker’s amusing ironic streak continues to make the band an indie essential. 8pm, $17, Paper Tiger, 2410 N. Saint Mary’s
