Queens Club, June 1, The Venue 

Though they look a little like Creedence Clearwater Revival rejects, Kansas City, Mo.-based Queens Club echoes sounds from across the pond. The quartet blends the sound of Scottish foursome Franz Ferdinand with London's alternative dance outfit Bloc Party.

Formed in 2008 members of metalcore band The Chariots, Queens Club's eclectic blend of electronics, punk guitars and velvet vocals give their debut, Young Giant (Tooth and Nail), a vibrant and fresh sound. Programming from drummer Jake Ryan and guitarist/vocalist Andrew Nichols incorporates elements of Owl City to the overall rock and roll vibe. Weird Al Yankovic clone, guitarist/vocalist Daniel Eaton, offers his soothing melodies with an odd trace of an English accent a la Kele Okereke (Bloc Party). Single "Less Talk" is a fast-paced, foot-stomping romp accentuated by bullhorn-esque vocals and furious guitar. You'll need some serious solvent to get these tunes unstuck from your head.

With Emery, Sent By Ravens, Kiros and Stop Drop and Party, 7 p.m., $12 adv., $14 door. The Venue, 521 Broad St., boisevenue.com.
