The first thing you should understand is that Dirty Girls are party boys. Theirs is not a busty burlesque show, but a snappy set of guitar-pop that seems to be geared toward throwing the best beach bash ever.

Before you dismiss this crew for jumping on stale indie rock trends, consider how expertly they rocked 'n' rolled Saturday at Skully's, where the bands dressed up like zombies for something called the Bring Out Your Dead Bash.

There's much to be said for a band that can wear its influences proudly without sounding deathly derivative. Dirty Girls pulled off just such a trick, touching on countless other reference points on the melodic indie rock spectrum. Think of them as a charming amalgamation of every recent guitar band that knew how to write a hit.

As the power chords and major-key hooks started piling up, I couldn't help but think of Wavves' set on that same stage late last month. Dirty Girls' music wasn't quite so raw, though. And they reminded me of Surfer Blood in the way guitarists Stefan Doke and Dennis Tanner channeled and modernized Pixies-style surf guitar, only without Surfer Blood's paralyzing awkwardness. These guys know how to carry themselves.

Out front is Jeremy Fina, who until recently helmed the microphone for the sharp Strokes/Phoenix mashup Chelsea Automatic. He's strapped on a bass for this band, but the bouncy Black Lips effect is working for him, and it allows both guys at his flanks to unfurl the guitar interplay that pushes this band to another level.

Lost amidst all the high-pitched "Oo-oo-ooh" choruses and tremolo guitar is Matt Whitslar's drumming, but with music like this, fading into the background may be a beat-keeper's main objective. Ask The Strokes' Fabrizio Moretti - if you didn't notice him, he probably didn't screw up.

Now if only these guys would release some recordings! I don't see any tunes on their Facebook page, and I've yet to discover any other online presence - if you type "Dirty Girls" into Google, a rock band certainly won't be the first thing that comes up. These guys will never be as popular as porn, but if they keep cranking out such catchy music they might come close.
