Asheville-based band Bulgogi describes itself as a “perfect storm of dancey punk rock gleeful nutty psychotherapy,” as well as “terrified child dance punk,” but there’s no need to fear frontman Tim Tsurutani, his death-defying vocals, tongue-in-cheek lyrics or the band’s danceable, hard-edged melodies. (That is, assuming the band isn’t trying to lull us into a false sense of security with the cute creatures pictured above.) Bulgogi puts an end to its performing hiatus at The Mothlight on Friday, July 18, at 9:30 p.m. Deleted Scenes of D.C. and locals Minorcan also take the stage. $8. themothlight.com. Photo by Lindsey King
