Hungry Skinny perfect a kind of dirtbag glam befitting their Northern California roots. What initially sounds like the same sort of garage pop that comes from Ty Segall and Mikal Cronin eventually reveals itself to be impeccably assembled rock that draws from the sloppy blues-rock of '60s mods like the Rolling Stones and the Kinks. Filled to the brim with untold amounts of swagger and spit, Hungry Skinny effortlessly recreate the days when the musicians in bands were more totems than men: shorthand in human form for the carefree living, drinking and fucking that rock 'n' roll supplies in spades. Despite the goofy sloppiness the band presents, the music reflects what professionals the members of Hungry Skinny are. These are tightly constructed songs that find their hook and get out before they wear out their welcome.

HUNGRY SKINNY, w/ the Loud Potions, Phil Taylor, 7 p.m., all ages, Le Voyeur, 404 E. Fourth Ave., Olympia, no cover, 360.943.5710
