TOTALLY MICHAEL
10 p.m., ACAC. $6.

Totally Michael
is a one-man band out of Bloomington, but originally from Cabot, who specializes in syrupy sweet dance-anthems about cheerleaders and prom and Winona Ryder. That he counts Blink 182 and Soophie Nun Squad as major influences isn't hard to pick up on. His lyrics follow in the unabashedly juvenile, gag-a-minute tradition of the former (the chorus of the tribute to Ryder goes, “Winona I'd like to get to know ya/let's burn Saks Fifth Ave. into the ground”), while his concerts, many of which have been here at house shows in the past, are all about crowd participation, costumes, wearing short shorts, reverting to childhood and other similarly Soophie-ish wild-out behavior. Little Rock's most promising experimental act, Ginsu Wives, opens the show. They sound like Prince as covered by a deranged chorus of broken robots.
