Eight Gigs: Animals in the Attic

Sat., May 20, 8 p.m., Shine, $7

Is it possible to write rockin’ surf-pop tunes that also double as headphones-wearing, put-you-to-sleep lullabies for your post-work evening? The answer is an emphatic yes. I’m thinking of locals Animals in the Attic, whose five-song EP pretty much sums it up: Half-Asleep Surf. These are great ultra-catchy psych-garage rock songs that you can vibe out to, right alongside your chilliest of chill-wave bands. Highly recommended that you not drive to these songs. They could lull you into a peaceful space of mind that would likely result in a car accident. 1400 E Street, Suite A; www.facebook.com/
