Hellogoodbye

7 p.m. Saturday, October 21. Mississippi Nights (914 North First Street).

Hellogoodbye's 2004 self-titled EP was a homemade dweeb-dance masterpiece, both hopelessly spazmatic and endearingly earnest. So it's not surprising that on their debut full-length, Zombies! Aliens! Vampires! Dinosaurs!, the SoCal quartet do exactly what they suggested in an early MP3 hit: "Shimmy Shimmy Quarter Turn (Take It Back to Square One)." Z! A! V! D!is peppy, sugary powerpop at its finest, a CD taking HGB's familiar blips, synths and herky-jerky sentiment to a sunnier, more '80s-inspired locale — one where it's not only possible to be jokey and wistful, it's highly encouraged.
