Bleached, Black Belles, Boykiller 

When: Thu., Feb. 9, 9 p.m. 2012
Price: $10

What happens when two notorious cut-ups trade in their signature squall for saccharine melodies? Apparently, they end up riding horses through the Mojave Desert and running across tombstones in high heels. Jennifer and Jessica Clavin—of Bleached, and formerly of Mika Miko—surprised everyone last summer when they emerged as a guitar-pop duo with the balmy singles "Think of You" and "Searching Through the Past," whose video finds the sisters engaging in the shenanigans mentioned above.

Jennifer had been spending time on the East Coast as an extra hand for pop goths Cold Cave. The experience helped refine her singing voice, which she had previously used to mostly grunt about turkey sandwiches and L.A. valley life. Jennifer soon moved back to her sunny home state of California to join forces with sister Jessie and their drummer of the week. (Jon Safley is locked in for this tour and the foreseeable future.) Jessie's guitar rumbles through each track with a jagged surf sound that could have been lifted from a Sonics song and anchors Jennifer's lyrics about unrequited love. Don't stamp them as a Best Coast spinoff, though; they're on a tip that's completely their own. Black Belles and Boykiller open. —Marissa G. Muller
