Your Daily Lick: My First Earthquake

Downstairs (self-released)



Who among us can resist that sweet spot between synthesized electro-pop and hooky indie rock - that fertile, eminently familiar territory mined by modern outfits like Mates of State and Matt and Kim? Not San Francisco group My First Earthquake, whose debut blends those bands' pop might and indie cool with strong, irreverent female vocals to varying degrees of success.

At the Knockout (3223 Mission St., San Francisco) on Wednesday, July 15. 9 p.m., $7
