Friday To-Do: Frown Pow'r

FROWN POW'R
9:30 p.m., Sticky Fingerz. $5.

We've been here before, brethren. Twice, in fact. Back in July, the lads in Frown Pow'r scheduled a CD release party at Sticky Fingerz for their debut, “Don't Doubt It, Shout It!” only to spin it a pre-release party when the album got hung up at the distributor. Same deal in August at White Water (local bands, Frown Pow'r is well-positioned to tell you who not to get to duplicate your CDs). But saving some unforeseen catastrophe, you won't get burned a third time. The CD is in and ready to be sold. I've seen it; there's a cathead sticking out of a Funland-style vortex on the cover. More importantly, I've heard it, and can say with some confidence, that it'll appeal both to the band's fervent base, those who appreciate the cracked-out hoedown feel of their live show, as well as to anyone who appreciates smart, allusive songwriting, dissonance and tambourines. Or, how's this for a plug? Courtesy of David Fair, of Half Japanese fame: “[The album] sounds like the Beatles if they came from the United States instead of England and kept playing in a little club instead of touring the world. And I mean that all in a good way. Maybe if the Beatles had followed this path they would've ended up this good.” The See and Androids of Ex-Lovers open.
