Elena Lopez has long established her chops as a top songwriting and (especially) exquisite vocal force in the local scene with her indie-pop group Octahedron. From rocking Youth Orchestras of San Antonio-backed cover shows at the Tobin to gigging at a venue near you, she’s been hard at work. Her side project Baby Bangs, a grungy-sunny, pop-punk affair in which she’s supported by Freebies drummer Dane Rousey, gives her a chance to vent some spleen and yell. If you’ve ever wanted to see your lust for solid, ’90s revival-nodding fuzz-punk satiated in a hookah lounge, this is your chance.
