Ever since putting out their self-titled EP, Faux Slang have proven themselves to be a standout band with their sound that blends post punk with 60s pop amid a cacophony of heavy synth, dynamic guitar work, and infectious drum beats. Tonight they’ll be taking the well-deserved spotlight when they headline Johnny Brenda’s. Faux Slang will also be joined by the local three-piece Royal Shoals. The band features former members of Roper, Public Record, and Dr. Dog precursor Beard. Royal Shoal’s debut EP was put together with the help of Uniform Recording’s Jeff Zeigler (Kurt Vile, The War on Drugs, etc.). Their opening performance is sure to set the tone for the rest of the evening. Johnny Brenda’s, 1201 N. Frankford Ave., 9pm, $10, 21+ (Photo by John Vettese) - Bill McThrill
