Boom Chick tonight at Low Spirits with The Scrams and Red Light Cameras

Frank Hoier and Moselle Spiller may be the cutest couple in rock and roll—but that's not why you should see Boom Chick play live tonight at Low Spirits (2823 Second Street NW), says Samantha Anne Scott. She explains what’s-the-fuss about the Brooklyn band here. The show begins at 9 p.m. and will be opened by locals The Scrams and Red Light Cameras—$5 and an ID that proves you’re 21-or-over gets you in.

Q & A with half an atomic duo

Frank Hoier and Moselle Spiller may be the cutest couple in rock and roll—but that's not why you should see Boom Chick play live. The onomatopoetically named Brooklyn duo melds lo-fi electric blues and rockabilly, accented by surf reverb and frenetic punk. Synthesized in jam sessions and loft parties, Boom Chick's multigenred sonic amalgam sets heads bobbing and asses shaking.
