Three under-the-radar shows this week

The Liza Colby Sound

Psychotic Reaction These guys named their band after the Count Five song, so that should give you an idea of how much this Oklahoma garage rock trio rules. Influenced by proto-punk legends like The Stooges and MC5, Psychotic Reaction play dirty, fast punk rock (hear: “Gas Station Beer”) that foams at the mouth with blistering aggression, sexual energy and a love for two of science fiction’s greatest—H.P. Lovecraft and George Orwell. Things could get weird. With Von Kin. March 29, 10 p.m., free, The Griffin.

The Liza Colby Sound “I want to kick mother*ckers in the face with rock ‘n’ roll.” That’s what frontwoman Liza Colby says happens when she’s on stage and overcome by music—when those first chords are struck, summoning her three-piece band to play the blues as if the rock gods had demanded it themselves. With Evol Walks, Teddi and the Northern Lights, Pet Tigers. March 30, 8 p.m., free, Beauty Bar.

Roselit Bone Ever wonder what your Cramps singles would sound like if played at 33 RPM instead of 45? Do it, and you’ll get a taste of Roselit Bone’s musical approach—or you could just listen to their 2017 LP Blister Steel and experience it for yourself. If ominous Spaghetti Western cow-punk is your thing, make sure you get out for this one. With the Wild Sparrows. April 4, 9 p.m., free, The Griffin.
