Synchro proffers Dairyland dark wave sweets tonight

Everyone needs to get out of the house—no, work doesn't count—every now and again. I personally plan to do some R&R creepin' at Synchro Studio (512-B Yale SE) this evening. What could lure a dyed-in-the-wool recluse like me out and about? Samantha Glass. I've been a fan of Madison, Wis.-based synth hunk Beau Devereaux's work for a month of Sundays, and tonight he brings Burque "synthetic melodies remind[ing] one that moonlight can illuminate space in as striking a manner as any old mass of incandescent gas." Devereaux is touring with stellar Milwaukeean one-woman minimal synth/cold wave act Stacian. Highway dream-pop duo Dripping Rainbow and the inimitable Alan George Ledergerber rep our enchanted local scene. Peep related A/V below. Synchro Studio • Samantha Glass • Stacian • Dripping Rainbow • Alan George Ledergerber • Wed May 15 • 9 pm • $7 • ALL-AGES!

In this month’s installment of MAXIMUMCATERWAUL, he shares a quick and dirty overview of 10 shows he caught in March. ... right here in our quirky, beloved burg. Peep related A/V below.

Venous volume, hip-hop devotional, Burque + klezmer 4EVA and sonic docs for lovers

There's a strong musical connection between Burque and Denver. From Denver "ladyz"-centric music/art/performance fest Titwrench to local solo outsider ladyfest Gatas y Vatas, there's a lot of crossover love. The Meat Heart recital at Synchro Studio (512-B Yale SE) showcases the Denque (did I just coin that?) bond with performances by Denver-based poof-punk trio The Matildas and avant-garage/slop-pop outfit Pacific Pride and local prankster duo The Jeebies (real-life couple Clifford Grindstaff and former Alibi editor Marisa Demarco), supergroup Fando and solo experimental persona Lady Fox (Mauro Woody). Peep the 411 on the Meat Heart concert, hip-hop and klezmer fests and two terrific music docs (Beware of Mr. Baker and Ornette: Made in America) in this week's Music to Your Ears. Check out related A/V below. Synchro Studio • Meat Heart • The Matildas • Pacific Pride • The Jeebies • Lady Fox • Fando • Thurs Feb 14 • 8 pm • $7 • ALL-AGES!
