Genre: Rock

The show: Virgin Mary Pistol Grip with Aquamarine Dream Machine at 9 p.m. Friday at the Barley Street Tavern, 2735 N. 62nd St. $5 at the door.

About Virgin Mary Pistol Grip: This four-piece rock band has released its debut album, a self-titled record that the band says combines rock from the ’50s, ’70s and ’90s. The standout song is “Whiskey Flats,” a strummy tune with a bit of a country flair that sounds like the Eagles cranking up the distortion, with singer/guitarist Jales Hupke’s voice being a near-perfect reflection of The Samples’ Sean Kelly.
