The disturbingly somewhat danceable lo-fi electro makes you wanna slit your wrist, but dying alone is so naf- so Mount has added a couple of Brit back-up dancers called The Food Group…and they play instruments!

We Are Scientists + Oxford Collapse

Pop showmanship, cutting-edge futuristic jokes, and infectious power pop…it’s all a bit ridiculous, typical for kooks originally from Claremont, California. The didjeri-duo play from newly released album Brain Thrust Mastery…not as good as last album With Love and Squalor, but at least they’re still together (minus one…RIP Michael!). Oxford Collapse opens.

QxBxRx

Queers, beers, and rears…oh my! Homo-punk hits the L.E.S.! It’s the new generation doing Squeezebox vs CBGBs vs Rock n Roll fag bar. Go-Karff, Sir Loins, and A. Martini host a night of sleazey punk power bottoms, ripe for ploughing. Love or Perish, Naked Hearts, and Black Tie Party perform live.
