Growing up, Josh Hodges had one goal: to "just do music most of the time and not have to work other jobs." After 10 years of playing with STRFKR, he can say he has achieved it. The band has pumped out hit after hit. Its songs have been played on popular television shows like The Blacklist and Weeds, and its album Being No One, Going Nowhere (Polyvinyl Records, 2016) topped the Heatseekers chart and reached the Billboard Top 10. Fun fact: The band wrote that album in a rental house near that most Dr. Seussian of landscapes, Joshua Tree, where it was somehow less expensive and more convenient to make music than in Los Angeles. The STRFKR sound comes off as bright and poppy with an ironic Millennial twist. Catch it live at The Knitting Factory on Thursday, Jan. 25.
