Starfucker (STRFKR)

The Waiting Room Lounge, 6212 Maple St.

9 p.m. $13 in advance/$15 day-of-show,

Naming a band can be tricky. Before the moniker Starf**ker was coined, the band was briefly known as PYRAMID then Pyramidd. It wasn’t until 2010 that the band reverted to the bold band name of Starfucker, also stylized as STRFKR.  The Portland, Oregon derived group will bring their synthy indie pop sound to the Waiting Room stage. Josh Hodges leads when it comes to vocals but members Shawn Glassford, Keil Corcoran and Patrick Morris are multi instrumentalists with occasional vocal contributions from Corcoran and Morris. The band currently has three albums with “Miracle Mile” being their most recent released this year. While the band has had a difficult time getting critic approval, they still have a strong fan following. Their entrancing beats and euphoric melodies make for a fresh dance party selling out shows wherever they go.
