Judi Chicago's latest 7-inch tempers the group's old-school house music allegiances with rich, Roxy Music pop grooves that come as a welcome change. Still, the song is a comedic lament over the harsh realities of a night in clubland, where "these pretty girls aren't so pretty when they turn up the lights in the clubs of Fun City." With the B-side, "Degenerate Son," vocalist and keyboard/guitar player Ben Coleman still spouts absurd ruminations ("I want a hot dog in a bun/You've got one, I need one"), but the shift toward honest and somewhat earnest songwriting is refreshing as well. Judi Chicago gets away with a lot of bratty sass in ways that no one else in town can pull off. Why aren't they signed to Virgin? (Self-released) 4 out of 5 stars.
With Kid Stuff, Roman Photos and DJs Jeff Myers and AustinIsNoRobot. Free. 9 p.m. Thurs., Jan. 28. Star Bar. www.starbaratlanta.com.

Yes, 14 is the correct answer. I'll pass your info along to the group's manager,…
That was January of 2007, and they are 21 now, so I'm guessing 14?
