Since 1995, Arrington de Dionyso and a rotating cast of musicians have created otherworldly freak-rock incantations as Old Time Relijun. Though they haven’t released new material since 2007, de Dionyso has kept busy with his Indonesian-throat-singing trance-punk band Malaikat dan Singa, and with his equally trippy visual art. I’m also hardly containing my fan-girl squee that tonight’s lineup includes Kicking Giant, the ’90s Olympia-by-way-of-New-York duo of International Pop Underground indie-rock lore. Kicking Giant’s abrasively off-tempo, fuzzed-out, cute-noise approach was balanced with sincere songwriting and a much softer side (see: “She’s Real”). Part improvised noise, part candied twee-pop, their high-powered lo-fi jams are a rare treat. It’s a night for reanimating the best of ’90s Olympia, and it promises to be wonderfully weird.
