Infamous Sugar, Torpor, Noncanon, Lazy Janes 

When: Fri., Feb. 24, 10 p.m. 2012
Price: $6

Lazy Janes take their name from a Philadelphia punk squat house where someone who had overdosed moldered on a couch for weeks. While that might be gruesome enough for a goth band, a friend of theirs described the sound as more like "Riot Grrrl meets Dead Moon."

Indeed, the quartet's approach is kind of punk rock. Drummer Nicole Story and keyboardist Jenny Williams had never played their respective instruments before, but the quartet just enjoyed making music with their best friends. "It's way more fun because we're learning together," says Story, "and there's no pressure."

Though they've only been at it a couple months, they've already written at least eight songs and are set to record a demo disc with Sorry State Records' Daniel Lupton. In the meantime, Story and singer/guitarist Carla Wolff, who work together at Fox Liquor Bar, have been spending recent late nights after work in the practice space they share with Whatever Brains. So much so that Whatever Brains have cracked, "It's like your clubhouse."

That's just their style. Story acknowledges that practices can become a "drunken mess," but in the best way. "We'll run through our set," she explains. "It's a song and then a bunch of nonsensical banter. But we crack ourselves up." They hope to bring that same lighthearted, fun-loving attitude to their debut show this week. The Infamous Sugar, Torpor, Noncanon and the Lazy Janes play Friday, Feb. 24, at Kings. The 10 p.m. show costs $6. —Chris Parker
