Like fellow Oklahoman outfit The Flaming Lips, Evangelicals create an acid-fried, psychedelic pastiche, drawing from cheap movie sound effects, countless rhythmic layers and a bevy of studio clatter and effects.

The group plays an 8 p.m. show tonight at the Cactus Club with openers Headlights, an Illinois group with a refined, acoustic power-pop sound and heavenly male/female harmonies.
