Fantastico, Richard Bacchus & the Luckiest Girls, Demon Eye 

When: Thu., Sept. 20, 9 p.m. 2012
Price: $5

For once, truth in advertising! Fantastico plays garage-soul that rolls up like Five-O on a doughnut high. It's that arresting. The quintet's format—two drummers, two female vocalists and a singer/ guitarist—is rather unusual but quite effective. The grimy groove orientation suits the twin-trap rhythm section. This serves frontman Stu Cole's purposes nicely, as he vamps, skulks and shimmies over top with gritty, distortion-laden garage-abilly bluster. Sonar Stranger and Jody Kidney are the delicious frosting, with their voices a funky Greek chorus of "Hell yeah." Richard Bacchus & the Luckiest Girls and Demon Eye open, making this a terrific night of rock 'n' roll. —Chris Parker
