Smart Bets: U.S. Girls

The band name sounds more like a gymnastics team than a minimalist experimental music project. Indeed, U.S. Girls is the solo effort of Meghan Remy. Philadelphia's City Paper describes Remy’s songs as "noisy, hazy things. Ghostly and all but incoherent, her voice rises and falls beneath thick layers of distortion and snippets of white noise. There are hints and glimmers of recognizable rock conventions — a little bit of pop energy, an occasional catchy chorus." In 2011, Remy started new label Calico Corp with fellow experimental musician Slim Twig, who will share the bill at Broadway's on Saturday, Feb. 9.  10 p.m., $7. Nest Egg also performs.
