Led by frontwoman Lisa Rieffel, Killola is a California pop-punk four-piece, forever destined to be compared to Blondie because of the color of Rieffel's hair. But no one says blondes can't rock. The band has developed a cult following primarily via a grass-roots Internet effort and through Rieffel's co-starring role in the lesbian-themed web series "Girltrash." Killola is also giving away its 2008 album I Am the Messer for free on its MySpace page. Free show, too, so if you don't walk away with a crush on Lisa, you'll get your money back.
8 p.m. tonight at Chances, 1102 Westheimer, 713-523-7217.
