Krisp at Green Room, January 7

Miami foursome Krisp is one of the few local acts to actually label itself "chillwave" on its various web pages rather than running quickly in the other direction from even the vaguest whiff of that derided term. More oddly, that pseudo-genre tag doesn't even fit. Sure, Krisp plays gently retro dance music, but instead of beach-obsessed guitar noodling and humming vocals that go nowhere, their songs have a little bite. More disco-ready than chill, Krisp songs hinge on memorable synth melodies and sing-along vocals. That, combined with the band's onstage penchant for retro leisurewear, makes them one of the more memorable acts currently going on the indie club circuit.
