Eight Gigs: La Lenguas
Mon., July 6, 8 p.m., Press Club, $5
Hailing from Los Angeles—where the lengua tacos are plentiful—La Lenguas delivers on mixing sunny surf pop with gritty, low-fi garage rock. It's an expected combo for a Burger Records band, but La Lenguas takes it a step further with its '50s rock 'n' roll vibe and '70s punk edge. It calls its sound “dirty doo woop.” Still, the originally New Orleans-bred band is definitely a Burger band in terms of its DIY aesthetic and ironic adorableness. La Lenguas is on tour supporting its debut, three-song pink cassette Tears In My Milkshake, which dropped in May. Local punk favorites Dog Party and Sneeze Attack make for an awesome bill. 2030 P Street, www.facebook.com/lalenguas.
