Nashville trio Daddy Issues writes refreshing love songs that span the spectrum of sexuality. Packaged like a PBR wrapped in a glittering teal Koozie, the trio’s music plays with spectacular self-awareness. “Creepy Girl,” from the group’s Can We Still Hang full-length, riffs on an inflated crush, going so far as to name future children after the late Sex Pistols’ bassist Sid Vicious and his equally debaucherous partner Nancy Spungen before pivoting with a wink, changing “creepy girl” to “creepy bitch,” and suggesting “you should call the cops.” And maybe you should, but what’s the fun in breaking up such a killer party?

With Diet Cig and World’s Greatest Dad. Free with invite or $8. 8 p.m. Sat., Nov. 19. Masquerade, 695 North Ave. N.E. 404-577-8178.
