Thurs., March 07, Kelli Pop
The Press Club, 9 p.m., $7
Peach Kelli Pop may just be Canada's answer to Shonen Knife. PKP plays some downright infectious and sunny pop songs with a hint of garage and punk. Trust me: Just watch the video for the song “Do the Eggroll,” and you will be an instant fan. Compared to Shonen Knife, Peach Kelli Pop has a more prominent undercurrent of darkness. Indeed, the subtle dissonance that offsets the bubblegum-pop songs makes it adorable but kind of scary. As unapologetically cute as Allie Hanlon and company let themselves get, the group's deadpan delivery just adds a level of oddness that makes it infinitely better. 2030 P Street, www.facebook.com/do.the.eggroll.
