GMOs are supposed to freak you out, but hybrid instruments merely demonstrate artists' unwillingness to be restrained by the musical status quo. In this week's music feature, A Cure for Stockhausen Syndrome, DJ/DIY mainstay/music writer Derek Caterwaul brings us up to speed on Manny Rettinger's chuppers, hybrid musical instruments that each boast not only their own ambiance, but even individual personalities. As Caterwaul notes, attending Cabinet of Curiosities on Saturday may give you a whole new set of ears. Scope related A/V below. The Kosmos • A Cabinet of Curiosities • UBIK Sound • Carmina Escobar • Marisa Demarco • Monica Demarco • Drake Hardin • Martian Funk • Sat March 2 • 7:30 pm • $7 • ALL-AGES!
