Wed, April 16.

For those of you who thought Daft Punk’s most recent work wasn’t quite yacht-disco enough, Chromeo are here to scratch that itch in your sequined white denim. Featuring cheeky lyrics, ’80s-aping drum machines, and synthesizer lines smooth enough to do a line of coke off, their music borders on parody, and none of it would work if the songs didn’t stick. Amazingly, they do. Their all-time classic remains “Night by Night,” an incandescent vocoder-laced dance-floor anthem, but their subsequent rel... more »

Fatoumata Diawara

Wed, April 16 at 7:30 pm.

France-via-Ivory-Coast musician Fatoumata Diawara has one of those voices that envelops you in its warmth, its smoothness, its vibrancy whether you speak her language or not. Her music combines jazz, folk, and Wassoulou (think West African blues) into a sumptuous whole, as her compositions spiral through full-throated solos and surprisingly funky, bass-laden breakdowns. The disparate cultural influences informing her sound seem to actually warrant the old “world music” tag, and at the center of... more » $24.50.

King Tears Bat Trip, netcat, Cavity Fang

Wed, April 16 at 8 pm.

Local experimental label Table & Chairs will be bringing the avant-weird to Ballard Jazz Walk all weekend, but be sure not to miss this excellently billed all-ages show. Racer Sessions-related supergroup King Tears Bat Trip's post-music school vibes are heavy, with four drummers, tenor sax, noise guitar and the Chango—a computer-generated sound interface bat-tripper Brandon Lucia created himself. Their debut recording is a parallel post-jazz universe of anthemic, disjointed melodies muddled in... more »

Mark Hosler, Soulgazer

Thurs, April 17.

One of America’s preeminent culture jammers and sonic pranksters, Negativland member Mark Hosler makes a rare Seattle appearance tonight. He’ll reportedly be using a device called the Booper, which Negativland bandmate David Willis created by adding transistors to an FM radio receiver, enabling it to send its output to its input. The resultant sounds from the Booper vary wildly, and combined with Hosler’s other DIY electronic gear, the music generated should be strange and unpredictable. A perf... more »

Tiga, Green Velvet

Thurs, April 17.

Usually we have to wait till Decibel Festival to get a bill with two lewd muthas like this on it. Montreal’s Tiga DJs and produces tech-house tracks that should come with birth control—which is why it makes all kinds of sense that he’s collaborated with Audion/Matthew Dear. In his best work, Tiga combines the lascivious with the lysergic in order to keep the dance floor humid. Green Velvet (aka Cajmere, aka Curtis Jones) is also a trippy house-music savant with more than two decades of delirium... more » $15.

Godflesh, Cut Hands, House of Low Culture

Thurs, April 17 at 8 pm.

How about a potent dose of extreme music from England from veterans of the underground Godflesh and Cut Hands? Headliners Godflesh cut eight albums from 1988 to 2001 that influenced scores of industrial-metal bands. Justin K Broadrick and co. brought a strong emphasis on rhythm to this ultra-heavy style, flaunting hiphop and drum ’n’ bass beats as prominently as their feedback-streaked guitar riffs and bludgeoning bass riffs. The imminent release of a new album and EP has prodded Godflesh back... more » $25.

Pocket Panda, Secretary, Half Breed, Bill Horist

Thurs, April 17 at 8 pm.

Bill Horist works strange magic on the instrument in ways that I was not aware you could or should do; his prepared guitar works create soundscapes that would be hard to pin as simply “guitar” if you couldn’t see him jamming a cymbal between the strings or playing the instrument with a bow flat on his lap. Seattle bands Pocket Panda and Secretary are the definition of indie music if there ever was one (was there ever one?). Panda’s is a bouncy and melodic folk-skewing kind; Secretary make a mor... more » $10/$12.
