Dudes. You already know that Yucky Duster bring the thunder because you saw them open for Shonen Knife right? Well in case you squares are just tuning in, they’re the best indie-poppers around, with a punk edge for your nerve and a chuckle for your belly. Haybaby’s alternately sweet and swampy sound is no joke. Hopefully they’ll play their new song about Donald Trump: it’s a real winner. True Dreams have songs full of catchy riffs and bratty cheerleading chants. All those openers aside, the real stars of the gig are Fraidycat. It’s their release show for their debut album Other Better Places, out on tape via the good people of GP Stripes. They make straight forward indie rock with power-pop tendencies and a love of harmonies. It’s a good time live, especially the stomping “Best Pie.” Since the show is at Alphaville, you can actually order a slice of “aunt shea’s pumpkin pie” at the gig, but I prefer the chicken nuggets. Anyway you slice it, this gig is sure to be a party. Be there.
