Electronica popsters STRFKR talks its gay bar origins before tonight’s show at Prophet Bar

Last year, Starfucker (or STRFKR for short) released its impressiveĀ  sophomore album Reptilians, a trippy endeavor that showed some interesting growth since their 2008 self-titled debut. Dare I say, they sound like what Pink Floyd might have if they had gone the synthy-dreamy route.

Bassist Shawn Glassford, above far right, took a few moments to talk about their first show ever at the San Francisco Eagle, how they might fare at our own Dallas Eagle and whether he would top or bottom for Ryan Gosling.

Read our Q&A after the jump. Then catch them at The Prophet Bar tonight with Painted Palms and Alexico.

GIVEAWAY: Tix to Of Montreal on Wednesday

As you probably have noticed, this is a big week for concerts in our neck of the woods. Wednesday night’s double-header could definitely split the gays, but maybe this will help make up your mind. The guys at the South Side Music Hall are offering Dallas Voice readers a chance to win a pair of tickets to Of Montreal, pictured here with opening band Painted Palms.

So whaddya have to do? Just email us here with “Take me to Montreal” in the subject line. We have four pairs to give. One could be yours.

This video is from their last show at the Granada in November.
