Anything But Joey 

Saturday, January 10, at the Hurricane.

Loathed by hipsters and metalheads, adored by seemingly every teenage girl in KC, Anything But Joey cannot be ignored. The KC quartet is one of the few local acts with a large enough following to play two shows at the same venue on the same night. The early gig should be packed to the gills with ABJ's legion of squealing fangirls. The later should have ample elbow room for the curious. On hand at both will be copies of ABJ's recently issued EP, the cheekily titled Necessary, But Not Cool, which features four new tunes plus six bonus tracks from the archives. The recent material features keyboard flourishes (courtesy of vocalist Matt Groebe) but retains the group's signature mix of uppity rock and harmonic pop. The Hurricane shows will serve to launch a five-week tour that will take ABJ across the Midwest, an outing that should provide the band with a few more photos for the "girls kissing" section of its Web site.
