Gavin Russom has built analog synths for paradigm-shifting DFA Records bands LCD Soundsystem and Black Dice, but he also knows how to generate his own distinctive sounds from them. The New Yorker’s brooding, cosmic synthesizer jams and edgy, un-gridlike dance tracks—with longtime recording partner Delia Gonzalez and in his more recent projects Black Meteoric Star and Crystal Ark—typically veer toward epic transcendence. Tonight, Russom will be DJing, but expect nothing less than a deluge of strange, trance-inducing selections. (Electric Tea Garden, 1402 E Pike St,, 9:30 pm, free until 11 pm/$10 after, 21+)
