GARAGE POP | PWR BTTM 

PWR BTTM is having a bit of a moment right now. Liv Bruce and Ben Hopkins formed the band at Bard College back in 2013 as a three-piece, and gathered a devoted collegiate following for its glittered-out stage attire and freewheeling, ecstatic live shows. Since then, the high-flying garage-pop trio has become a duo, refining its high-flying sound with road-tested precision and grace. The album "Ugly Cherries" swells and screams with the glorious momentum of the band's live sets, offering a uniquely exuberant brand of power chord laden pop that feels like the best old Sleater-Kinney records shot through with Nick Cave wit.

PWR BTTM plays with Pity Sex, Petal, and Secret Pizza on Wednesday, June 8, at the Bug Jar, 219 Monroe Avenue. 9 p.m. $13-$17. bugjar.com; pwrbttm.bandcamp.com.
