That right up there is the slightly sanitized shorthand for the band's name. You might think that sort of handle would preclude things like record deals and having your tunes used in Target commercials, but you'd be wrong. You see, Starfucker's sparkly, psychedelic, electro-tinged pop is so catchy and appealing that they can have a career despite the mildly risque name.

The band's latest, "Reptilians," is 10 tracks of the type of thing that is the ideal accompaniment to youthful revelry. Need a soundtrack for next weekend's pharmaceutically enhanced night out? Dial up "Reptilians" or maybe the band's previous album "Jupiter" and blast off.

The opener at this all-ages show is Onuinu.

    You've got to figure that a band from frozen-ass Winnipeg is just gonna be way gnarlier and tougher than a band from some sun-kissed tropical clime where people wear tank tops and flip-flops year-round.
