Japanese rock band Pinky Doodle Poodle Pittsburgh concert rescheduled to May 6.

Japanese rock band Pinky Doodle Poodle will play in Pittsburgh on May 6, part of their North American tour underway since May 2018. The Charleston City-Paper summarized them in this way:
One of the coolest things about the Tokyo duo known as Pinky Doodle Poodle, other than the name, of course, is the juxtapositions in their sound. On the band's new single, "Jump In," the kick drum that starts the song off threatens to cave in the listener's chest, and the guitars are set to "massive eardrum hemorrhage," which makes it all the more jarring when singer Yuria's childlike voice comes in and launches into a stream-of-consciousness self-help pep talk, cooing "Don't miss a chance/ Don't miss your voice/ Everywhere, looking for it/ Don't be afraid."

So there's a lot going on here, all at the same time and louder than a bomb. It's similar to the collision of punk and pop that their label-mate Shonen Knife was so good at in the '90s or the lo-fi dance-rock chaos that the Go! Team creates.
They will play at Howler's in Bloomfield (map), a gig that was first scheduled for May 22. Tickets are still not available.
