All things sweet should define Cozy's first 7-inch release party. When Bonkers Waddington, Baz Bosworthy, Gordie Leatherby, and Fabian Blockbuster take the stage, the only thing to overshadow their striking stage presence and matching moptop/vest combos is their '60s homage power-pop. With handclap rhythms, big harmonies, and song titles that drop words like "sugar" and "huggin'," it's the stuff of wholesome goodness. Sprinkle in some showy guitar lines, sing-alongs, and mood lighting, and the music is well suited to the Turf Club's vinyl booths and hanging decor. Cozy are celebrating their debut release, the aptly titled Cola Shock Kids, courtesy of Chicago's HoZac Records, which has also released work by headliners NoBunny. With Bad Sports. 21+, $10, 9 p.m. 1601 University Ave., St. Paul; 651.647.0486.
