Books @ The Mod Club
$20 adv., doors @ 8
The Books are a bizarre, bizarre band working in plunderphonics, where they take a bunch of disparate samples and mash 'em together into something entirely new (and bizarre). Sort of like a less club-oriented Girl Talk, or something akin to the Avalanches. I got to see them live at All Tomorrow's Parties recently, and they're definitely worth the price of admission. Great fun. Besides, there's slim pickings otherwise, so why not? As an added bonus, The Black Heart Procession are opening, who aren't nearly as fun, per se, but instead wonderfully gloomy, dirgey folk. Get there on time then, eh? (Or just check out the videos, ye out-of-towners).
