Local Motion: Walkie Talkie U.S.A.

9 p.m. Tuesday, August 15. Off Broadway (3509 Lemp Avenue).

Walkie Talkie U.S.A.

$7. 314-773-3363.

St. Louis finally has a south-side supergroup. Jason Hutto (formerly of Midwest indie-rock favorites the Phonocaptors and Sexicolor) recently formed Walkie Talkie U.S.A. (www.myspace.com /walkietalkieusa) with members of Red Eyed Driver and two former members of Nadine. Walkie Talkie U.S.A. is making new, refreshing rock music while welcoming collaborations with friends in Bunnygrunt and the Sex Robots. This collision of talent results in songs that are as diverse as they are textured. Main songwriter Hutto mixes the cocksure swagger of the Phonocaptors with the catchy choruses of Sexicolor to create radiant, powerfully addictive pop songs. Their sound incorporates layers of bold power guitar, arresting harmonies, glam posturing and even twinkling, trippy Flaming Lips-ish delicacies. Don't miss this one.
