OSUNLADEFortune Kiki's Gettin' ____ series welcomes Osunlade, one of house music's most respected producers/remixers. While he's had success in the studio assisting mainstream artists like Musiq, India.Arie, and Patti LaBelle, Osunlade—who is also an ordained priest in the African religion of Ifa—is best known for his own highly percussive and spiritual productions that use the Chicago template as a springboard for more outward-bound excursions. Besides those achievements, Osunlade runs Yoruba Records (distributed by the impeccable Soul Jazz empire) and has remixed jazz greats like Roy Ayers and Grant Green, African superstars like Salif Keita, and modern beat masters like Spacek, Masters at Work, and 4 Hero—oh, and Radiohead. The bill's rounded out by Seattle broken-beat mavens SunTzu Sound, who recently received praise in San Francisco–based electronic-music magazine XLR8R. War Room, 722 E Pike St, 328-7666, 9 pm–2 am, $7 before 11, $10 after, 21+.


LE VIDEDavey Schmitt's monthly experimental-music showcase continues tonight with Dada Entry (xaxis wye and Ffej), "a concept born of a typo, a bizarre spotlight on the banal." If past recordings are any indication, you can expect ebbing and flowing rumbles, klangs, glurps, drones, subliminal pulses, and other cryptic ephemera to coalesce into drifting clouds of unsettling bliss. In a recent Stranger preview, I described Ffej's Patterns in the Storm as making "me flash back to the vividly visceral palpitations of Conrad Schnitzler's trailblazing electronic works of the '70s and Gil Mellé's harrowingly microbial soundtrack to The Andromeda Strain." Son of Rose also leaves his lab to reveal to you the paradoxical majesty of microsound in multidimensional dub space. His performance at the recent Kinetic event was a marvel of extreme tonality excavation that blew many minds that happened to be contemplating the life-size dinosaur models in the Pacific Science Center. The temporal incongruity of witnessing replicas of extinct reptiles amid Son of Rose's futuristic sounds was unbearably poignant. Go and get your blessed molecules caressed by his uncannily "natural"-sounding synthetic orchestrations. With Penetration Camp and DJ William F. Buckley. Re-Bar, 1114 Howell St, 233-9873, 9 pm–2 am, $3, 21+.
