Beach Party, Soft Skills and Matter


Hawthorne Theatre Lounge (map) Southeast
Thu., Jan. 31, 9 p.m. 2013 21+


Beach Party's batting average is one of the most consistent around. Their self-titled, five-song debut was easily one of the best local EPs of 2011, and their half of a recently released split single with Boston-based Dan Webb and the Spiders is equally excellent. Standout track "Useless" (from the EP) is at once reminiscent of Tim-era Replacements and crucial "premo" bands like the Promise Ring and Texas Is the Reason. Like those groups, Beach Party have managed to balance punk fervor with a classic pop sensibility, two genres that are all too often considered incompatible. Also playing are Soft Skills, a relatively new project featuring one half of eminent (math-)rock stars Duck. Little Brother, Duck! MORGAN TROPER
