Reunited '90s power-pop band Fantasy plays the Kilowatt

Revived local favorites Fantasy bring their danceable power-pop grooves to the Kilowatt this Sunday afternoon. 

A San Francisco club scene fixture during the '90s, the band anchored by the falsetto vocals of singer/guitarist Kirk Markopoulos developed a solid following during its early heyday. Known as much for their outlandish costumes as their hooky power-pop anthems, Markopoulos would reconfigured Fantasy into the group Little Fuzzy during the early 2000s, issuing one self-released album in 2007. 

Fantasy would resurface a few years ago with Markopoulous and original drummer Ragi Dindal (who has played with songwriter Kelley Stoltz and Americana band Macerator) and has been regularly playing many of its old haunts like the Make-Out Room (and spots that have opened since their extended hiatus like Albany's Ivy Room) to enthusiastic crowds.   

For this afternoon show at the Mission District's popular Kilowatt Sunday, Fantasy will be joined by SF neo-psych band Everybody's Flowers and local rock en español indie outfit Novio Electrico.
