Eight Gigs: TV Girl
Thur., May 12, 9 p.m., Sophia’s Thai Kitchen
TV Girl doesn’t want you to know much about it. The trio hails from San Diego and makes retro, lo-fi pop music, but you won’t find any glossy press photos of them and it’s probably best to take your cues from the title of the band’s latest album, Who Really Cares. Of course, you should care if you’re into Camera Obscura, Belle and Sebastian or the Dandy Warhols, and—bear with me—Fatboy Slim. Yes, this mysterious musical act loops and mixes and samples and is darn near hip-hop-esque at times. Intrigued yet? You should be. 129 E Street, Suite E, in Davis; www.facebook.com/tvgirlz.
