Doors @ 7 pm, Show @8pm | 21+
Tickets are $5 online or at The Record Exchange
San Francisco’s Maus Haus sounds like a confection of Kraftwerk, the Beach Boys, and Sonic Youth, ground up and re-formed into a filet of raw cool. Amid bursts of glitchy noise, dirty drums, and buzzy synthesizers, the band keeps the whole thing fun–with catchy vocals and hypnotic rhythms. The resulting sound is startlingly unique yetstrangely familiar.
Described as “irrepressibly synthetic” and “the band with one tall guy and two shorter dudes”, The Dirty Moogs channel a simpler time; a time when robots were still cool, Pink Floyd was still good, and nobody except nerds cared about synthesizers. Members Brenton Viertel (keyboards), Will Gillett (keyboards), and Peter Thomas (keyboards) make up this trio from Boise, ID whose primary mission is to set a metrically calculated table upon which a feast of dancing takes place. While growth and stability are the operational paradigm for most bands, the Dirty Moogs focus on short-term vintage synthesizer purchasing and usage. Shows are often a battle between the operations specialists and their equipment until one of the parties emerges victorious into the glory of a minimoog fueled bass line seductively slipped onto a passing TR-808 drum beat. They invite you to dream the dream that was electronic music in 1977. New single “Julie’s an Android” available now, 4 song “Maxi Cassette” (and pre-release download) available soon on Sunless Sea Records.
