A Musical Nest Out on a Limb
The Roost perches at the Outpost for its fourth season
By Mel Minter
Hydrophonium: a tuned jar of water fitted with a submerged microphone. Described by its inventor, Danishta Rivero of Voicehandler, as an “electroacoustic percussion instrument,” this unusual device can be played in a number of ways. For example, it can be struck with a mallet, or bubbles can be blown into it through a straw. The resultant sounds are then processed through a variety of electronic effects.

I don’t know what homicidal 1989 comedy Weekend at Bernie’s has to do with rock bands Call It Art, Rebilt, My Heart The Hero, Parachute Picnic or Sweet Weapons. Hopefully only this flyer. See them play at the Launchpad (618 Central SW) on Saturday, Aug. 4, starting at 9 p.m. The 21-and-up show is $5. (JCC)

No super-heroines will be present to heal anyone, but the music performed on May 27 and 28 starting at 8pm for Cloak and Dagger Fest at the El Rey Theater and Effex may just do that for those young people still recovering from school. Many well known DJs like Gorgon City, Two Fresh, Vindata, Lee Foss, Lee K, MANIK and Cashmere Cat are performing and even more local favorites like Reverend Mitton, Matthew Levi, DJ Eldon, Burn The Disco, PEZZ and DJ Ohm breaking down beats, as well. If you're not able to teleport like some dark, mysterious strangers, you can get tickets for entry starting at $15 for entry to Effex on day two (only folks 21 and up allowed), $20 for entry to El Rey on day one (18 years and older on this day) and $28 for the whole weekend.
