Digital Leather, Destruction Unit, Puffy Areolas, Runnies Recommended Soundboard

When: Sun., Oct. 21, 9:30 p.m. 2012
Ryan "Elvis Wong" Rousseau's impressive band resumé (the Wongs, the Reatards, Digital Leather, Earthmen & Strangers) has earned him the right to do whatever he wants, including release a 2012 cassette of fried lo-fi solo material called Hello! Mr. Cactus Man, which sounds like a handful of barbiturates laced with David Lynch. His work with Destruction Unit—a band whose former members include Jay Reatard and Alicja Trout—has morphed since its founding in 2000 from more-or-less straightforward garage into sweeping desert rock inflected with Krautrock and psychedelia. The six enveloping songs of jamming fuzz and synth swashes on the upcoming Void LP (Jolly Dream) are mostly loud and abrasive and dirty, but it's their subtleties—distant bubbling murmurs of noise, faint guitar noodling—that make for the best hooks. —Kevin Warwick Digital Leather headlines; Destruction Unit, Puffy Areolas, and the Runnies open.
