The Baltimore Sun

Hometown -- Baltimore

Current members --Jim Mengel, guitar; Matt Anderson, bass; Tim Ford, vocals; Mike Franklin, guitar; Dale Smith, keyboards; Garrett Adler, drums

Founded in --2003

Style --psychedelic pop rock

Influenced by --Pink Floyd, Radiohead, Placebo, Smashing Pumpkins

Notable --Though the band just released a new EP, Stalin's New Haircut, it's been a part of the budding Station North Arts and Entertainment district for some time. With the studio Hour Haus as a base, it plays regularly in the area.

Quotable --"It's a really exciting time for Baltimore," Mengel said. "Especially with the kind of national exposure Dan Deacon has been getting and the whole Wham City Collective. ... Hopefully, we can make some sort of name for Hour Haus as Wham City has done -- have one or two breakout artists that inspire an entire scene and build it organically."

Hear Furious Love Kids open for Odd Girl Out tomorrow at Fletcher's, 701 S. Bond St. Doors open at 7 p.m. Tickets are $7; $10 for those younger than 21. For more information, call 410-558-1889 or go to The band:
