If we've really got a zombie apocalypse right around the bend, tunes like those composed by Seattle rockers Atomic Bride will be at the nexus of it. Wielding deceptive, surf-guitar runs with snarky, punk-rock boy-girl vocals, Atomic Bride's new LP Dead Air sounds like a haunted transmission from a sock hop on Mars. The B-52s comparisons aside (Fred Schneider would need to have been weaned on the Misfits and the Pixies for it to equate accurately), the quintet's undeniably strong songs deftly transfer live, as they volley between psychedelia, garage rock, surf punk, and more. It would stand to reason, then, that their appearance at the tiny Matchbox Lounge is a must-see event. With Portland's Black Pussy supporting, that's a safer assumption than the inevitability of a zombie apocalypse... or is it? RYAN J. PRADO
