Shiny Toy Guns

7 p.m. Wednesday, January 31. Creepy Crawl (3524 Washington Boulevard).

The last time sparkling new-wavers Shiny Toy Guns played St. Louis, they opened for synthprog-heads Mute Math at the Creepy Crawl — a slightly odd pairing, considering that many fans in attendance weren't even born when STG's cover of choice (Depeche Mode's "Stripped") came out. For this headlining gig, however, the LA quartet finds itself in a much different (and more favorable) position: Its album, We Are Pilots, has been lodged in the iTunes top ten recently — thanks to the free giveaway of the robotic slice of pop-sugar, "Le Disko" — and is the recipient of some serious positive word-of-mouth buzz. Rightfully so: Pilots resembles the Human League at its boy-girl best or the airy keyboard pop of Stars.
