The soulful Seattle psych-funk duo THEESatisfaction is composed of Stasia Irons and Catherine Harris-White, two talented ladies who keep things real and positive on their highly inventive Sub Pop debut, awE naturalE. After a stellar guest spot on Shabazz Palaces' recent album, Black Up, Stas and Cat are poised to make their own waves on the national music scene with their distinct R&B sound and intoxicating beats. The unconventional capitalizations in their band name aren't the only similarities that THEESatisfaction shares with last year's breakout artist, tUnE-yArDs, as both groups feature unique female musicians who have captured a modern, unorthodox style and sound that is all their own. With Toki Wright. 18+. $12. 8 p.m. 701 First Ave. N., Minneapolis; 612.332.1775.
