PUNK | Mystik Motorcycles 

French band Mystik Motorcycles seems to love glam punk — if fashion is anything to go by. Lead singer/guitarist Rondelius Gordon sings in English while his bandmates get hyper, a la the dirt and glitter of the 70's and 80's music scenes. Established in 2001, Mystik Motorcycles is reminiscent of The New York Dolls at 45 RPM, with its own garage rock delivery. Tunes about burlesque girls ("Jiggly Tassels"), obnoxious blond groupies ("Platinum Blah Blah Blah"), and musically untalented bands ("Empathy") blend bouncy melodies with high energy. The quartet's North American tour kicks off in Montreal and includes Rochester among its three U.S. dates.

Mystik Motorcycles performs with Televisionaries, Death Camp, and The Telltale Signs on Wednesday, April 23, 9 p.m. at The Bug Jar, 219 Monroe Ave. Tickets are $6-$8. Bugjar.com.
