P r etty Things

-

They claim to be influenced by both Katy Perry and Swedish black metal progenitor­s Bathory, but local trio Kevin Maimann and the Pretty Things actually have their own thing happening. Armed with an acoustic guitar but possessed of a taste for metal, Maimann writes pointed little songs with something of a grotesque edge. The “dark-powerpop” band are celebratin­g the release of their latest effort with a show at Wunderbar, bringing friends Cygnets, Catgut and Blood Bitch along for the ride. When: Friday, May 1 at 9 p.m. Where: Wunderbar, 8120 101st

St. Admission: $10 at the door Info: facebook.com
