Since ’96, Danish psychobilly punks have been putting on a manic show thanks to awesome frontwoman Patricia Day and bassist Kim Nekroman (also of the Nekromantix). It’s been 12 years since the last album — 2008’s Kiss Kiss Kill Kill — and hopefully that will be put right soon. But still, there are few ’billy bands in the punk spectrum that put a show at eminently watchable as the HorrorPops. Mind you, Patricia Day made the news in 2010 when she claimed that the Hard Rock Cafe and Mattel toys were selling a rockabilly-themed Barbie doll that looked exactly like her without her permission. Oh well — imitation is the greatest form of flattery.

The HorrorPops play at 7 p.m. on Saturday, February 15 at the Wiltern.
