Want some peaches with that pop?

Starting Friday, the Presidents of the United States of America (aka PUSA), delivering its quirky brand of alternative rock, present a three-night festival at the Showbox at the Market. Known for such ’90s hits as “Peaches,” “Lump,” “Kitty” and “Dune Buggy,” the band has played for close to two decades.

PUSAFEST features different guests each night. Friday includes Minnesota folk legend “Spider” John Koerner and Portland indie rock band Black Whales. Saturday features Seattle pop duo The Young Evils and Brooklyn singer-songwriter Jonathan Coulton, while Sunday includes Canadian singer-songwriter Steve Poltz.

The first two nights are already sold out, but this may be the only chance to catch PUSA in Seattle this year, says drummer Jason Finn.

8 p.m. Friday-Saturday (sold out), 7 p.m. Sunday, Showbox at the Market, 1426 First Ave., Seattle; $20-$25 (800-745-3000 or ticketmaster.com).
