Monday: The Creepers, Nudie Suits, Steve Strohmeier

Nov. 30

The Nudie Suits, the duo of Allison Clendaniel and Ruby Fulton (also members of City Paper Editor-at-Large Baynard Woods' the Barnyard Sharks), mix hushed and looping vocals with violin and electronic skitters, squiggles, and screeches on their recently released EP "Summer Fun," out on Ehse Records (home to the similarly avant but pop-friendly Wume, among others). Listening, you hear glimpses of Cocteau Twins and Karlheinz Stockhausen and Bikini Kill and sometimes it sounds like all of those playing in the room together—especially on 'Laura Flynn.' On their Facebook, they describe themselves as "influenced by Twin Peaks, repetition, art rock, and nonchalance," which, hey, sounds about right to me. Also on the bill, Wham City-affiliated group jokey rockers the Creepers and synth instrumentalist Steve Strohmeier. 9 p.m., The Crown, 1910 N. Charles St., (410) 625-4848, thecrownbaltimore.tumblr.com, $5. (Brandon Soderberg)
