Choke frontwoman Cameron Eve works the stage like a blond hybrid of Tina Turner and Iggy Pop. And the N.Y.C. quartet represents about the same demographic mix, blending the songwriting finesse of '60s Motown girl groups with a musical attack that's high-energy 1977 punk. Like, it's so '77 that Buzzcocks bassist Tony Barber produced their "Extra" EP. Call 'em a grrrrl group. Except they're not all girls. Which is fine; Eve may be all the woman you can handle.
