How can anyone deny the surfy, bubblegum-punk perfection of a song like “I Hate the Weekend,” the first single from Tacocat’s latest album, Lost Time? What’s not to like about the casually clever, casually glum lyrics, the fuck you, dude angst hurled at the gay-bashing normies and money-lusting techies who invade the city every weekend as unwitting symbols/byproducts of thoughtless gentrification, and all that bound together with ultra-catchy hooks? It’s called catharsis, people, and it helps. Anyhow, this show is the album release for Lost Time, produced by Erik Blood, who will play his Stranger Genius–approved set. Mommy Long Legs join the resistance with their punchy-shouty garage jams, as does the dark-Devo, robo-dance pushers, Ononos. All of this is secretly sad-kid music you can throw up a fist and awkwardly stomp and stiffly head-nod to. Be still, my heart. (The main show is preceded by an all-ages bill at 6 pm featuring Tacocat, Lisa Prank, Hardly Boys, and Boyfriends.) RICH SMITH
