Sloane Peterson offers the kind of pop-punk that sticks in the back of your head and makes you hum along. At its best, you'll be singing along by the end of a song -- the first time you hear it. This Miami-based act features players from much heavier projects, like Consular, lightening up to play melodic, fun music. Last year the band released a free demo that drew a nice buzz in this town, and they're following that up with a new seven-inch, Knots/Telephones. It's being released by Financial Ruin Records, a very new 305-based tape and vinyl label.

To celebrate this auspicious release, Andrew Santa Lucia and crew will be playing the requisite record release party at the nicely humming along all-ages venue Goo. Money collected at the door goes to out-of-towners, and the show is cheap. Word to the wise: parking runs out fast.
Sloane Peterson, with Merkit, Downsided, and Merchandise. Saturday, May 9, Goo, 151 NW 54th St., Miami. Show starts at 7 p.m., tickets cost $5. myspace.com/goomiami
