If you say “white animals” to most people, they’ll think you’re talking about animals that are white. Only a precious few music nerds will know you’re referring to the alternative band from the ’80s. And that’s a pity. The Nashville group should have been huge, but for one reason or another, mainstream success just wasn’t in the cards. Oh well, lamentable as the group’s lack of recognition may be, there’s no denying the White Animals’ still-relevant appeal. Tunes from their 1985 release, “Ecstasy,” such as “Don’t Care” and “This Girl of Mine,” are lighthearted, rockin’ romps that never go out of style. The reunited group brings its Reagan-era college rock to the Canal Club on Friday, Oct. 4. Doors open at 8 p.m. Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 the day of. thecanalclub.com.
