More so than many of the other bands striving to capture the feeling of music in the '90s, pop weirdos Dead Larry feel like they emerged straight from the time capsule. It's remarkable how uncanny their resemblance is to the pop eccentrics like They Might Be Giants, Ben Folds Five, the Lemonheads and Crash Test Dummies. Dead Larry is unabashedly upbeat music that finds their footing in piano pop, with diversions into white-boy-funk, and stoned psychedelic explorations. This is a band that feels like a college radio station was zapped by a magic comet and made corporeal. One thing that seems to sum up all of Dead Larry's ethos is that they care about you shaking your ass more than just about anything in the entire world. For a band this committed, it's best to give in and dance.

DEAD LARRY, w/ Birger Wink, Larry Wish, American Forrest, 8 p.m., Deadbeat Olympia, 226 N. Division St., Olympia, $5, 360.943.0662
