Dream Wife

Oct. 2
7 p.m.
Indie Rock, Punk

Dream Wife are among the leading young punk bands emerging from London, handily navigating the genre’s “pop-” and “post-” varieties. Referencing the playbooks of bands like Bikini Kill and Yeah Yeah Yeahs, they haven’t yet grown into a unique sound, but on their self-titled debut from January, they show their dynamic versatility while memorably exploring feminist themes. If they don’t have a “Rebel Girl”-caliber signature song yet, they seem capable of getting there. With Russo and Strange Relations.
