Junkie Tour Kickoff
Friday, July 8

In high school, most musicians are either too terrible or too reliant on chops to join anything resembling a decent band. But not the South Side’s Junkie, who put together a darling little garage trio that considers the stoned output of Wavves as the height of Western civilization. On their May release W/E — packed with teenage wisdom like “I like the things you say” and “Always bummed always in love" — the boys have hooks and they know how to use them. Playing in pools, backyards and bars — where they’ve inevitably, lovingly snuck adult bevs — Junkie has quickly become a hometown favorite. Maybe they’ll smash a 40 on their van’s front bumper as a bon voyage. With The Two Lips, Flowershop, Levees, Ants. $7, 7pm, Imagine Books & Records, 8373 Culebra Road, (210) 236-7668
