Future Twin 

When: Fri., May 3, 9 p.m. 2013
Price: free
San Francisco indie rockers Future Twin can be a bit of a musical chimera — sometimes, it reveals the raucous spirit of its earlier, blissfully degenerate punk counterparts (think a poppier, sweeter version of, say, Black Flag), particularly on tracks like “Lockits” and “Yuka.” On the other hand, songs like “Badseed” deliver a heavy dose of synth-infused twee pop. Some of its irresistible appeal — the part that doesn’t come from churning, infectious melodies — can be attributed to Jean Jeanie’s unabashedly big-lunged vocals that often veer heavenward into the realm of Björk or Zola Jesus (just listen to “Landslide,” the closer on the band’s early 2012 Situation EP, and try to keep your heart out of your throat). Future Twin plays with Voyaj, Upside Drow, and All Your Sisters at The Uptown (1928 Telegraph Ave., Oakland) on Friday, May 3. 9 p.m., free.
