STRFKR w/ Champagne Champagne & Gardens and Villas

April 16 STRFKR w/ Champagne Champagne & Gardens and Villas The Waiting Room, 6212 Maple St. 9 p.m., $10, onepercentproductions.com The stars have aligned for Omaha as Portland-based electronic group, Starf***er (also known as STRFKR), makes its way to the stage. Formed in 2007, it was originally Josh Hodges’ solo project, but soon evolved into a quartet once multi-instrumentalists Ryan Biornstad, Keil Corcoran and Shaw Glassford entered the picture. Figuring out a way to market them well has always been a problem as they often have to spell their name “STRFKR” to avoid pissing someone off. Eclectic to say the least, STRFKR will often perform in women’s clothing, which has garnered plenty of disapproval from music critics, but nonetheless, they are unapologetically doing their own thing And apparently it’s working despite their not-always-accessible moniker. Their new album, Reptilians, slithers with accessible, dreamy hooks and dancy synth-pop comparable to Passion Pit. STRFKR’s first record with the Polyvinyl imprint, Reptilians will hopefully earn the attention they deserve. After all, they’ve been at it for four years. It’s about time.
