STRFKR, Chrome Sparks

PETE COTTELL
8 pm., Thursday October 17 | $17 advance, $20 day of show.
Crystal Ballroom
1332 W Burnside St.
 
[ELECTRO-POP] Electro-rock without arena ambitions is difficult to come by these days. Leave it to Portland to offer the synth-pop enthusiast a sensible, slightly askew group of oddballs that pushes dinky synths to the absolute limits in the pursuit of booty-shaking dancehall bangers that have the “massive drums” reverb plug-in turned off. Ignore the interludes and throwaway instrumental numbers that muck up Miracle Mile and you have, at the very least, a hook-laden disco circus you won’t be driven to immediately delete after the singles lose their charm. In other words, if spending any amount of money on MGMT records left you feeling burned, consider any part of STRFKR’s modest catalog your shot at redemption.
