The Willowz 

With the Sex Crimes. Monday, September 26, at the Beachland Tavern.

Lots of bands have gotten their big break by having their music used in films. But seeing the Willowz live, it's obvious that -- regardless of the group's inclusion on the soundtrack to Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind -- the quartet doesn't need visions of Kirsten Dunst in her underwear to be compelling. Formed in Anaheim, California, when its members were teens (they're still barely of age), the Willowz inject the flaccid form of garage rock with pimply agitation and pure pop, touching on everything from the Flamin' Groovies to later Angry Samoans to Love (whose "My Flash on You" gets a blazing in-concert rendition from the Willowz). The group's newest full-length, Talk in Circles, hits stores in May -- one more step toward the Willowz' world domination. -- Jason Heller
