Pick: Audacity

November 23

Audacity w/ Hunters, Video Ranger
O'Leaver's Pub, 1322 South Saddle Creek Road
9 p.m., $7, facebook.com/eyeballpromo

Fullerton, Calif. band Audacity came onto the scene playing a house-partying brand of lo-fi garage rock. Despite only being in their late teens and early 20s, Audacity in 2009 already displayed a knack for earworm melodies, even when slapping their songs together with slacker-punk abandon. Turns out what Audacity was at the forefront of was a movement in California, as they quickly became aligned with the founders of Burger Records, a lo-fi, mostly-cassette record label and record store. The label now hosts a bunch of bands with similar takes on sloppy punkish garage pop. But on Audacity's 2013 album Butter Knife, they show that they're now teaching a master class on these snotty party anthems. They still sound perfect for the basement, but these hooks could stick in your head just about anywhere.
