The Shondes/The Helium Tapes/That's My Daughter

9 p.m. Wednesday, December 19. The Bluebird, 2706 Olive Street.

Some are quick to call the Shondes a "queer-core" band based on the presumed transgendered identities of a few members — and because its sound easily attracts a college-aged queer-core audience. But it's more precise to call these New Yorkers a powerful, political band composed of young queer activists. While often compared to Sleater-Kinney, the Shondes sound more like the Gits: bold, melodic and aggressive, with music featuring interesting Jewish folk-music underpinnings. Though the lyrics are naked and unapologetic, fierce indie rock is its main ingredient — the full force of which can be felt when the band plays live. The Helium Tapes and That's My Daughter open.
