Presenting a fresher and more feminine aesthetic than the other sweaty bros over at the totally bodacious Burger Records, The Aquadolls, fronted by founder Melissa Brooks, is a totally Orange County, grunge-glam/surf-pop outfit — and most likely the exact thing that’s been missing in your life. Though the group hasn’t released any new music since 2013’s raunchy, fun and fuzzy Stoked on You, Brooks and company come to San Antonio as part of their first national tour and, presumably, in preparation to take over the whole world. If you like your garage rock with a Cali sheen and a poppy wink, all stressed out on tie-dye, then you’ll wanna catch Melissa Brooks and the Aquadolls. Local grunge punk outfit Whatever? and young Chicago electro-indie artist Storm Calysta round out the bill. $10, 7pm Fri, Paper Tiger, 2410 N. St. Mary’s St.,
