Tiger House, Talkative, Bubble Cats 

When: Thu., Dec. 19, 8 p.m. 2013
Price: $5
The three local bands that combine forces tonight create a pop-influenced lineup that's as diverse and playful as it comes. The common thread that connects these bands is the ability to craft joyful and uptempo music that's not afraid to take a few twists and turns along the way. Bubble Cats mash classic rock and punk into spurts of high-octane exuberance. The trilogy of EPs they released earlier this year are chock-full of garage-pop tunes as delightful as their name suggests. The sometimes rocking, often experimental freak-folk sounds of Talkative are the wild card here, but that's not surprising given how far-out last year's appropriately named cassette Frantically sounded. Tiger House make bright dance-pop love songs that are whimsical and endearing. They've even got a cover of "Last Christmas" by Wham! up their sleeve, should the need for a little extra holiday spirit present itself. CHIPP TERWILLIGER
