A Musical Nest Out on a Limb

The Roost perches at the Outpost for its fourth season

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.

Flyer on the Wall

Non Sequitur Cultural References

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)

Don’t Let the Party Stop, Just Keep GERUNDING

Gerunding • pop rock

The Sylvan Esso show at the Sunshine Theater is sold out already, which is a mega bummer. But! You can still go to the afterparty, which happens to include a performance by local psych-pop band GERUNDING, who are just as, if not more, cute than Sylvan Esso. Not that it’s a cuteness competition, just saying. It all goes down at the Moonlight Lounge at 11pm on Thursday, March 22. Even if you’re not going to the concert before ... You’re still invited. For ages 21+.
