Casper and the Cookies

$7 to $9. No phone.

We're sorry, but some music is just too Cute to be called anything else. Yes, that's "cute" with a capital "C," especially when Casper & the Cookies is involved. The Athens, Georgia, band specializes in prancing power pop with twinkles and rainbows and lollipops and sparkles and unicorns, goddamn it — and that's a good thing. Far too many bands shy away from being labeled with the C-word, thinking it somehow hurts their credibility. We say embrace it. Few bands can combine dreamy harmonies, joyous melodies and just a dollop of sugary noise with as much delight as Casper & the Cookies does. Expect all of this — and a super-energetic dance party to boot — when the band hits St. Louis.
