Welcome to What I Like, our weekly chat with local musicians about their favorite things.
Locals Molly Picture Club make crisp, post-punk dance rock. You can buy the band's EP four on the floor on the band's website. It's a fine soundtrack for your pre-going-out ritual or for a post-show party, and there's promise of a full-length release this fall. Catch Molly Picture Show tonight at Press Bar (above Crosstown Station). The band will open for Dream Wolf and the Delighted. Doors 8:30 p.m. 21-plus. $7.
