Saturday SOS Pick

One flashback in particular deserves attention Saturday

Girls Against Boys

9:20pm, the Keep stage
Double bass attack, D.C. hardcore roots, demimonde dance-floor aspirations, and decadent ambience: These Girls aren't like other boys. Classic Venus Luxure No. 1 Baby and House of GVSB defined the Nineties alt-rock underground. Reactivated in 2013 after a decade-long absence, the NYC quartet hasn't released new music since that year's The Ghost List EP, but its sleazy noir rock remains timelessly potent.
