Get ready to bounce around Thursday night at Galapagos. There will be an Ironminds night of music featuring Crowns on 45, Tartufi and The Io's. Now for some promo blurbs:

Washington City Paper says Crowns on 45 "are punk in the way punk should be: tousled, catchy and in-your-face." NYRock.com says that Crowns on 45 have combined "the sneer of punk, the tickle of '80s synth pop, and the attitude of downtown New York City," and are "so catchy I find myself humming them in the bathroom at work."

The San Francisco Bay Guardian named the all-girl band Tartufi one of the Top 10 local live shows in 2001. San Francisco promoter and reviewer Shani Heckma says that Tartufi plays songs that are "solid and dance-able, thick with new wave influences."

Centered around a mutual love and respect for 80s new wave and 90s power-pop grit, Chris Punsalan and Autumn Proemm formed the Io's in 1999. Chris's well-developed songwriting and crooning capabilities joined with Autumn's angelic, heartfelt harmonies are something to behold.

The fun starts at 8:30. Cover is $7. Hope to see you there.
