Teenspot, Super Projection, Sweeping Exits, Mr. Bones 

When: Sat., Dec. 21, 9 p.m. 2013
Price: $5
I'm not quite sure how Teenspot crammed six entire songs onto their debut 7-inch, Aggressive Inline Skating, but I suppose it helps that none of them boil much past the two-minute mark. One-hundred-twenty seconds is the perfect duration for the chunks of chiming, agitated power pop made by the local supergroup of Your Rival's Mo Troper, Spookies' Mayhaw Hoons, Paper Brain's Mike Wroblewski, and Profcal's Asher McKenzie. (Full disclosure: Troper is a Mercury contributor.) As good as Aggressive Inline Skating is—very—it's too bad Teenspot, as a band, never quite got off the ground; they're only now playing a record release show for the 7-inch, which was first released online back in April. And this may in fact be Teenspot's final show, proving that pop at its most fleeting and fickle may also be pop at its most perfect. NED LANNAMANN
