STARLIGHT MINTS
9 p.m., Juanita's, $5, 18 and up.

Really funky, heavy beats, trade-off vocals and instrumentally complex arrangements have attracted fans across the country to Oklahoma's psych-pop pranksters Starlight Mints. This five-person group, bonded together by a love of archetypal pop music and AM radio, has turned out three acclaimed albums as well as the brand-new “Change Remains.” Songs definitely worth checking out before the show include “Zoomba,” “Submarine No. 3,” “Rinky Dinky” (which has a T-Rex strain in its DNA) and “Rhino Stomp.” JP Inc. and Little Rock's Natural State complete the triple bill.
