On its self-titled 2014 debut EP, the Louisville rippers in White Reaper come on like the scuzzy, Ramones obsessed kids they are ("We all love the Ramones," the band told Louisville Magazine last year).

As such, the musicians keep things appropriately light, giddily bashing their way through fuzzy garage-pop nuggets like the crackling “Funn,” the organ-fueled “Ohh (Yeah),” and “Cool,” a sneering blast of lo-fi rock about a girl so cool “she can’t even sleep at night.” I’ve no idea what it means, but that hasn’t prevented the song from embedding itself in my skull.

The Girls! and Montauk Trash open the show.
