Glass Candy, Chromatics, Desire, Mister Joshua 18+ Recommended Soundboard

When: Wed., Jan. 11, 8 p.m. 2012

Back in the early aughts, the way Glass Candy spiked their vintage synth music with a dash of no-wavey art-punk made them a natural fit with the electroclash fad. But unlike many of their contemporaries, the Portland duo managed to keep it together when that cultural bubble popped. The pair has admired eccentric big-budget film composers like John Carpenter and Angelo Badalamenti, and those feelings have apparently only deepened with time. In October they released the digital single "Halloween," a fitting tribute to the Carpenter film of the same name. And member Johnny Jewel recently caused a stir in Hollywood when his other musical projects, Desire and Chromatics (both of which open tonight's show), contributed a song apiece to the very rightly lauded soundtrack for Nicolas Winding Refn's Drive. —Miles Raymer This show is part of the Tomorrow Never Knows festival, which begins today. Chromatics, Desire, and Mister Joshua open.

Price: $15
