Carpenter Brut with Magic Sword


Neumos (map) Capitol Hill
Mon., March 20, 8 p.m. 2017 21+


Inspired by the soundtracks of director John Carpenter, the Italian disco of Giorgio Moroder, and generations of video-game soundtracks, synthwave is a dark and moody style of electronica that inspires dance parties, but the acts playing it tend to sign to heavy-metal labels. If you need to see how well those two things mesh visually and stylistically, check out the “Turbo Killer” video by France’s Carpenter Brut. Right about the time the hot rods crash into the inverted cross spaceship, I was sold. So were many others, it seems. Carpenter Brut were going to play a smaller venue, but after Perturbator and GoST—two other synthwave acts—sold out the Highline, this show was moved to Neumos. JOSEPH SCHAFER
