Is this tour supporting a new record? Of course it is; Winnipeg electronic musician Aaron Funk is so terrifyingly prolific that just about every Venetian Snares gig might as well be a release party. Like most of his material, the tracks on his latest full-length, Detrimentalist (Planet Mu), are a frenetic hybrid of rude, filthy breakcore and dystopian cyborg jungle—just the thing for a club night in the middle of a 28 Days Later-style zombie apocalypse. Punishingly dense and schizophrenically blippy, perversely funny and profoundly disturbing, it’d deserve a parental-advisory sticker even without the profane samples. And it’s great for dancing—especially if you have lots of extra joints or a set of tentacles. Otto Von Schirach, Cyrusrex, Naha, Surachai, and the Flashbulb (DJ set) open. —Monica Kendrick
