Monotonix, Turbo Fruits, Microbabies

VAC, July 8

by

Dads, bolt the doors. On Thursday, July 8, Visual Arts Collective will pulse with more testosterone than an all-boys prep school. Tireless Tel Aviv rafter-climbers Monotonix are storming back through Boise, and this time they're bringing along Nashville, Tenn., lads Turbo Fruits.

With songs like "Naked With You" and "No Drugs to Use" Turbo Fruits--ex-members of Be Your Own Pet--crank out enjoyably immature British-influenced garage rock. Reviewing Echo Kid, pitchfork.com likened the album to a diner cheeseburger: "cheesy, greasy, bloody, goes good with beer."

Topping off this messy man-wich are Boise's Beautician, a wall-of-sound instrumental duo, and irreverent rockers Microbabies. In a video interview with BW, Microbabies jokingly implored folks to "see us every chance you get because one of us will die." Oh, boy.

8 p.m., $10-$12, VAC, 3638 Osage St., Garden City, 208-424-8297, visualartscollective.com.
