Live Tonight: Uh Huh Her

Leisha Hailey and Camila Grey are Uh Huh Her, an emo synth-pop duo from Los Angeles. You may know Hailey as bisexual journalist Alice Pieszecki on The L Word, while Boy Meets World fans will recognize her as the cute and overly peppy struggling musician Corinna from the “Shallow Boy” episode. Uh-huh, her. The ultimate synth-pop duo fantasy, Hailey and Grey are not only bandmates, but also partners in life and love. The pair released their third studio album, Future Souls, earlier this year, independent of label backing. Its first single, “Innocence,” is five minutes of moody shoegaze that brings to mind Twin Peaks’ Audrey Horne’s sexy-dancing-by-herself type of swaying. The second single, “It’s Chemical,” features a beautifully haunted, distorted voice singing “We’re chemical dancing/Colors colliding/We’re chemical dancing/Halfway to the beat.” Like the 2004 PJ Harvey album after which the band is named, Souls was self-recorded (in Hailey and Grey’s home studio); and, like Harvey herself, still going strong, Uh Huh Her are proving they’re the babes with the power. Neumos, 925 E. Pike St., 709-9442, 8 p.m. $18 adv. 21 and over. DIANA M. LE
