Everything you need to know about Brooklyn rockers Total Slacker can be found on the song “Stuck in ’93.” Earnest in their irony (or is it ironic in their earnestness?), the band slowly undoes a sonic Fruit Roll-Up of reverberating guitars and nostalgic references. Headlining a V-Day spectacular featuring great acts, such as thrashing duo and IRL couple Hunters, garage shoegaze quartet Xray Eyeballs, and Vivian Girl Cassie Ramone, they are—if nothing else—worth sticking around for. That is, unless you hit it off with that cutie head-bobbing to your left.
