Despite their attention-getting name and penchant for dressing up in women’s clothes onstage, STRFKR is more than a novelty act. Their sound is an immaculate combination of indie rock, psychedelia and electronica. After all, you don’t last 10 years and six albums (the most recent being this year’s Vault Vol. 1) by just being weird. With Psychic Twin.
$22 ($20 adv.). Doors 8 pm.
press release: Since the release of their 2007 debut album, STRFKR have relentlessly toured across the globe, delivering to their fans a guaranteed non-stop dance party.
With four proper albums, the band has a wealth of dance party hits at their disposal and their career-spanning live set is a sweat drenched laser soaked affair highlighted by their homemade light show.
STRFKR began as a vehicle for Josh Hodges' songwriting but shortly after transformed into a full-fledged band with members Shawn Glassford and Keil Corcoran as well as additional rotating touring members.
Praise for the "Being No One, Going Nowhere" album:
"...sweet-tooth pop built on dreamy synths and bubbling guitars." - Rolling Stone
"The sort of thing you fall completely and hopelessly in love with on first listen." - Bullett
"If their last album, Miracle Mile was Hodges’ fearful exploration of his own mortality, then this time around he seems more at peace with the prospect of death, and more anxious about how to live. Being No One, Going Nowhere finds Hodges contemplating his own personal identity, meditating largely on his place in the cosmos and the quiet struggle of individuality and personality." - Pop Matters
