, the one-woman performance art project of Pink Flag guitarist Betsy Shane, incorporates thoughtful subjects with cheeky dance styling. Her energetic live performances encourage — warning! — audience participation. LAM! LAM!'s latest EP, Caliban, explores nautical themes and the trouble that lurks beneath even the most idyllic of seascapes. Show up with your subconscious desires and expect them to be dragged from the deep before the night is through. In plainer language, LAM!LAM! makes some pretty fun power pop tunes with cutting lyrics a la early '90s fem rock.
Take "Fuck Scene," for example: "In the dark I don't know whether to kiss or kill you/you think you're cool standing there." Who can't relate to that? Especially when it's danceable. This all goes down at Redwood Curtain Brewing Company with local dark disco babes Space Biscuit
