When: Sat., Feb. 13, 9 p.m. 2016
On their 2015 album GAWK, Boston’s Vundabar unleashed a masterwork of idiosyncratic garage pop. It is capricious, both in lyrical tone and jittery arrangements that never linger in one place too long, but the band’s whimsy is slyly sophisticated. Sonic shards of the Pixies, early Modest Mouse and Supergrass frame a philosophical bent informed by the likes of Kurt Vonnegut and Albert Camus. This is irresistibly catchy stuff that leaves you humming — and thinking. Vundabar play Signal Kitchen in Burlington on Saturday, February 13, with How Sad.
Price: $10. AA
