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.

Boom-Chicka-Chicka

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.

Boom Chick Show Pony · The Gatherers Kurt Russell · Blue Rose Ramblers Blue Rose Ramblers

Self-described “cyberdelic pop,” Albuquerque’s latest synthbeat group The Gatherers has rapidly—and deservedly—become a local favorite. Dreamy female/male vocals are tidily mixed with the sublime instrumentation of live (yes!) bass and drums, keys, loops and lots of knob twisting on little black boxes. A few tracks off this debut CD (especially “Dark Triangle”) have a great Ladytron feel, and that’s as high a compliment as can be given to any synthpop band. As good as Kurt Russell is, it barely hints at the brilliant live shows of The Gatherers. There’s more recordings to come soon. Expect major things.
