Radkey, Dead on TV, Wax TV, War on Women

Sat., May 23, 6 p.m.

Here’s to three African-American kids from Missouri—siblings Isaiah Radke, Solomon Radke, and Dee Radke—for doing their part to re­­introduce punk to its bluesy side. Before any of them were old enough to vote, the brothers Radke had already released two EPs reminiscent of the MC5 and early Misfits, each of them bolstered by Dee’s swarthy, preternaturally mature vocals and knack for blending aggressive blues rock with intensely catchy melodies. Tracks such as “Start Freaking Out” and “Overwhelmed,” both from 2013’s Devil Fruit, are instant sing-along jams, while “Parade It,” the single from their forthcoming as-yet-untitled debut LP, suggests a more developed, nuanced vibe. But maturity hasn’t eluded these young upstarts. Sure, they’ve described their music as a soundtrack for “fucking shit up with a baseball bat,” but the 2013 track “N.I.G.G.A. (Not OK),” a tirade against the casual racism they experienced in their mostly white hometown, is a powerful statement. —Drew Hunt $15, $10 in advance
