Wildhoney is a multilayered journey into ’90s pop saturations. Built on My Bloody Valentine densities, the Baltimore group’s preoccupation with mining the emotional depth from the almighty hook borders on obsession. The adrenaline-charged onion peels of “Seventeen” and “Get Out of My Dreams” from the group’s 2014 EP release, “Seventeen Forever” (Photobooth Records), are soaring fuzz-filled forays into emotional release. Vocalist Lauren Shusterich is the calm at the center of the storms, giving the listener something to hold on to during each swirling indie-rock burst. Wildhoney brings its near-perfect pop showers to Gallery5 on Wednesday, July 29. Opening will be the angular dreamscapes of Richmond’s Positive No and Capital City garage punk rockers Plain Scrap. Doors open at 7:30 p.m. Admission is $6-$8. gallery5arts.org. — Chris Bopst
