Turbo Fruits 

When: Fri., Jan. 28, 9 p.m. 2011
Price: $5

The Turbo Fruits could give a damn about intelligence, though they're not dumb in a self-conscious (AC/DC) or regular (Poison) manner. They just specialize in propulsive proto-punk throb that doesn't require a lot of thought. Bob your head and throw yourself into the nearest person, wall or beer bottle like you just don't care. Somewhere between The Stooges and Jay Reatard, the Turbo Fruits slap down the pedal and race to the finish with reckless abandon. For as vibrant and calamitous as it sounds, the hooks are never far behind. The Fruits are rambunctious bruisers. With The Mercators and Tea and Tempests. —Chris Parker
