Wed. March 22 | The second album from the L.A. punk band, helmed by explosive teen visionary Clementine Currie, is 2017's Apocalipstick (Secretly Canadian), opening with the self-assured chorus "I told you I'd be with the guys / But I know better now than to be with the guys" before punching the nuke codes. Ian Sweet, LALA LALA and Fruit Machines open at 10 p.m. at Siberia.
Static Masks album release
Fri. March 24 | Released on new locally based label Strange Daisy, Late Bloomer is the latest from the dreamy experimental pop quartet, performing some minor guitar somersaults floating through a hazy blend of blissed-out prog rock. SHAME, The Self-Help Tapes and Raspy open at 10 p.m. at Saturn Bar.
Sat. March 25 | The brothers Shirley continue their pop conquest on the New Orleans trio's 2017 singles "Magnolia" and "New Jack City," the former a synth-powered slow jam and the latter an anxious blast of propulsive power pop. Alexis & the Samurai also are on the bill at 10 p.m. at Gasa Gasa.
