Critic's Pick Release Date: 2010-05-26

Betcha you’ve already made a guess at what a band ironically named after cutesy-folder fashioner Lisa Frank that’s holding “sorta our first album release” at a house party and boasts song titles such as “Grrlz Just Wanna Have Fun,” “MegaBitch!” and (our personal favorite) “Fuck Luv, Eat Pizza” sounds like. And betcha you’re right: They do sound awesome to the max. And, yes, they are comparable to many of the other bands who purposefully misspell “girl” and pick their guitar strings with razor-blade press-ons, but if they had stubble and testosterone-driven rage boners you could just as easily namedrop the Circle Jerks, Big Black, or any other loud and angry band that manages to keep a sense of humor about itself and opts to spend its money on replacement guitar strings and Chloraseptic throat spray instead of musical composition classes. As “indie rock” increasingly apes John Hughes soundtrack fodder and it becomes increasingly apparent there are few if any musical genres yet to be invented, maybe it’s time to seek shelter in the type of psychotic discord our forefathers retreated to during rock’s first dark age. $2, Sat, May 29, house party, 717 E. Myrtle, — Jeremy Martin
