Tuesday, September 6No Babies

Like a five-person revolution against the oppression of hyperactivity medication, Oakland, Calif.’s No Babies opt for a lo-fi garage sound that isn’t as, well, nice as the omnipresent ’60s-apeing garage bands of our time. Theirs is a nearly anti-harmony cacophony of punk, jazz and noise delivered as fast and furious as a bank vault towed behind a Dodge Charger. The images conjured by their recent album, Upset the Rhythm, range from post-apocalyptic ruins (“Morlocks Take Manhattan”) to a back-alley exorcism (“Blurred or Double Vision”) to misfit toys mocking Metallica (“yrtbrtyb”). Who knew something so ugly sounding could be so beautiful? – Justin Strout (with Whitman, SSLOT, Permanent Nap, Keybump; 9 p.m. at Substance, 934 N. Mills Ave.; $3)
