With the popularity of indie dance parties springing up, its good to come across two bands that are reaching out to local audiences with bags full of dance moves and lyrics that hit home. Bonnie Riot crafts a memorable all-inclusive riotgrrl sound that borrows from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and a dozen other indie garage bands. The West Palm Beach-based five-piece has been adding members and tunes to its repertoire since the bands 2004 debut. But Bonnie Riot isnt just crafting unforgettable indie dance beats; the band is throwing high energy dance parties each time it takes to the stage. Sharing the marquee is the pop-savvy Ex-Norwegian, a Miami Beach-based three-piece thats mashed together a few decades worth of influences to push the danciest bits of power pop and garage to the front of the stage. Show starts at 9 p.m. Tickets are $5. Visit respectablestreet.com, or call 561-832-9999.
