Speedy Ortiz plays literate, zany punk between college semesters when lead singer/instructor Sadie Dupuis can hit the road. Speedy Ortiz plays literate, zany punk between college semesters when lead singer/instructor Sadie Dupuis can hit the road.

When she’s not teaching composition at UMass Amherst, Sadie Dupuis moonlights as the lead singer for rock troupe Speedy Ortiz. Originated as Dupuis’ passion project, Speedy Ortiz’s composed garage rock is flighty, while anchored in distorted, klaxon guitars. The punk angst is softened by punchy, cryptic songwriting that captures themes of unrequited relationships and self-deprecation in tunes that are playful and predatory.

Thursday 1/16. $8, 8:30pm. Twisted Branch Tea Bazaar 414 E. Main St., 293-9947.
