Theo and the Skyscrapers

Sunday, May 21, at 7 p.m. The Hi-Pointe (1001 McCausland Avenue)


Punk-rock grrrl Theo (ex-Lunachicks) Kogan's new band, Theo and the Skyscrapers, rolls through eleven infectious mini-dance anthems on the group's self-titled debut. It's spontaneous and snarky, with the flair of Blondie ("First Bleach") and the cheeky-chic of Missing Persons ("End of Time"). But Kogan doesn't forget her punk roots entirely; "Down the Hole" and "Not Alone" perfectly capture her brash eccentricity. Although slicker than the Lunachicks, Theo and the Skyscrapers proves that Kogan's more than good enough to hold sway in this boys' club.
