ROCK | StarBenders 

Frontwoman Kimi Shelter dubs her band, StarBenders, "blasphemous candy-coated bubblegum punk," and there's definitely some saccharine hooks — mainly in the earworm guitar lines and choruses. But popping out front are the grungy pumping guitars and Shelter's voice spitting teen pop punk. The band is a jean-clad four-piece from Atlanta signed to Institution Records and its eponymous debut EP is out now.

The StarBenders plays Thursday, August 27, at Flour City Station, 170 East Avenue. 9 p.m. $8. flourcitystation.com; starbenders.band.
