BoySkout 

Tuesday, September 21, at the Empire Room.

The gothic riot grrls of BoySkout are just as likely to light candles at the altar of Siouxsie Sioux as they are to rage about feminist politics. The San Francisco foursome crafts high-quality, dark-wave synth rock on their full-length debut, School of Etiquette. The doomy keyboards and minor chords on "Identity" twitch like Siouxsie and her Banshees while "Ecstasy" ebbs and flows like the dour dirges of Joy Division. Still, not all songs on Etiquette involve gloom and gray days. In fact, the jaunty "Back to Bed" contains exceedingly clever girl-on-girl sweet nothings like I am Napoleon and you are my Josephine/I'll start a revolution for your love.
