Pedal nerds, prepare to gawk: We’re feeling warm and fuzzy that local noisy mutants Franchise finally return to the stage this week. The guitar-heavy psych act is one of Orlando’s most thrilling bands to catch live, and they rarely perform, but this show promises extra excitement with the intel that Franchise has new songs they’ll be debuting at this engagement. It feels so stuffy to be describing the warped pop mentality of Danny Feedback (of Crack Rock Opera fame) with such reverence, but we’re gonna lay off the jokes for once and tell it straight: Their freakish fingerwork paired with dazzling effects create an experience that sparkles and crushes in equal kinds to leave you cross-eyed, with one eye on the pedals and one eye on the strings. Add to this that art-rock sensation Obliterati opens (they have new songs too!), and it’ll be a shock to the system all around. 

Franchise with Obliterati, Arc Pilot, the Smash | 9 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 21 | Will’s Pub, 1042 N. Mills Ave. | willspub.org | $5
