We often feature shows with psychedelic post-rockers Wastrels; it’s because of the trio delivers their riffs with a powerful guitar sound and pounding rhythm section that stands out in our already strong local music scene. (Think the The Cult at their most creative or The Jesus & Mary Chain at their most rockin’, just great stuff.) And so it’s with great excitement that we gear up for their EP release at the Kitty Cat Klub on Saturday and with other hometown highlights UMAMI, The Stress of Her Regard, and Ego Death, no less. Saturday, 9 PM. $5. —Taylor Carik
