Perfect Pussy, Broken Prayer, Split Feet 

When: Wed., Jan. 22, 7 p.m. 2014
Price: $10, $8 in advance
Syracuse five-piece Perfect Pussy creates a study in unexpectedly synergistic contrasts with its self-released debut EP, I Have Lost All Desire for Feeling—grindcore musicians collaborating with indie rockers, hooky pop that careens face-first into punishing noise, and songs titled with cryptic, borderline pretentious Roman numerals whose lyrics detail the inner life of front woman Meredith Graves with a radical honesty that the most devoted emo revivalist might find too real. Intensely abrasive and highly listenable, it’s one of last year’s most fascinating and enjoyable guitar-based experiences. Its four songs pack in a bounty of easily spotted influences, a lot of them originating in the 90s (post-Pavement slacker pop, powerviolence, the more avant-garde side of riot grrrl), but even if the component parts are familiar, the way the band smashes them together feels cracklingly new. —Miles Raymer Broken Prayer and Split Feet open.
