Stereo Total, Brilliant Pebbles, Boutros Member Picks Early Warnings (Music) Soundboard

When: Mon., Aug. 30, 9:30 p.m. 2010

Stereo Total's tenth album, Baby Ouh! (Kill Rock Stars), captures the Franco-German female/male duo at their ridiculous best. Ultra-cute and ultra-kitschy, they fulfill the American fantasy of ESL Euro-hipsters to the hilt. "I Wanna Be a Mama," sung by the male half of the band, Brezel Goring, is a bouncy bit of sarcastic bubblegum: in his flat German accent, he describes how he'd like to be a mom, name his baby Lucifer, and teach him how to make a living as a prostitute, all while Francoise Cactus fills in the choruses with innocent la-la-la-las. Brilliant Pebbles and Boutros open. —Jessica Hopper
