Modern Kicks: Show Preview

You know the opening credits of That '70s Show, where the cast of characters shout along to the Todd Griffin cover of Cheap Trick's "In the Street" while crammed in a car? It's an instant flashback to the heyday of sex, drugs, and rock 'n' roll, and a sound and attitude embodied by San Francisco outfit Modern Kicks. The glam-rockers sport denim, leather, and shag haircuts, employing melodic hooks glittered with playful come-ons in KISS-style anthems. A song like "Crew 'n' Up" offers lyrical flirtations over the formulaic rock: all hot guitar licks and fist-pumping beats. At the Hemlock this week, expect a set that is short and sweet — and all about the party.
