Of all the bands to emerge from L.A.'s much-fawned-over DIY space The Smell - the petri dish that birthed No Age, HEALTH and the comically monikered Abe Vigoda - Mika Miko is by far the most straightforward. They're four women and one dude who play punk rock with a relatively minor degree of art damage.

No, you won't find electronics-infused feedback soundscapes or jerky Caribbean rhythms on Saturday. These five offer punk's comfort food, meat and potatoes in the form of power chords and primal screams.

That should sit well with tourmates the Strange Boys. The Austin foursome's garage nuggets bounce and jangle with all the boisterous fun of the Black Lips and none of the hipster posturing.

They made quick work of Carabar a couple summers ago, playing with the intensity of Wembley Stadium headliners for a sparse Sunday crowd. Just think how much fire they'll bring in front of a packed Bobo.

Rounding out Saturday's sick lineup is Ipps, the brainchild of Necropolis couple Bo and Emily Davis. They'll offer up something less spastic, more poppy and just as twisted as their usual project.
