Friday, July 8 – Girls on Film, Wet Nurse

Tallahassee-based duo Girls on Film have not had an easy go of it; for one thing, they started off as a four-piece back in 2002. They’ve since “streamlined” their lineup – singer Rio and bassist Kazhmir form the core group, with keyboardist The Viirus providing live backup – and crossed a major hurdle with the release of their long-delayed EP, Mental Image, in 2009. Produced by Geza X, who has recorded albums for the Dead Kennedys, the Germs and Black Flag, it’s a late-night synth party that serves as an effective calling card. Also on the bill tonight is Orlando’s Wet Nurse, an all-girl trio whose sense of melodic structure, garage-y fun and attitude earned them a mention as one of the best new bands in this paper last year. Tonight’s quality lineup is yet another reason why free, local shows have blossomed of late. – Justin Strout (with the Ex-Boogeymen, Angels in America; 9 p.m. at Uncle Lou’s Entertainment Hall, 1016 N.
