Say what you will about their band name, but Fartbarf's music, commonly attributed as synth-pop akin to '80s punk New Wavers Devo, is too good to ignore. Same goes for their striking stage costumes, which consist of matching space onesies and caveman masks; one look and you might be tempted to walk away, but one listen and you'll be compelled to stay and dance. Fartbarf have remained in the local radar for some time now, just coming off a weekly residency at the Continental Room. But in case you've been living under a rock (or a cave) they'll be performing tonight at the Federal Bar with Bearwulf and The Thingz. Come join in the spirited dance party they have in store, which is nowhere near 'primitive.'.
