Matthew Dear, Guido Schneider, Frankie Vega, Gianna Hardt Early Warnings (Music) Recommended Soundboard

When: Fri., March 13, 10 p.m. 2009

German techno has polarized in the past few years—it seems like everybody’s making either boisterous party jams or formal minimalist tracks. Berlin DJ and producer Guido Schnieder has stayed a middle course with his tightly looped techno, which despite its austerity never stops being dancing music. I’ve yet to see him myself, but judging by the dozens of cell-phone videos on YouTube his live sets are expert, a must for micro-twerk enthusiasts. Matthew Dear headlines; Schneider, Frankie Vega, and Gianna Hardt open. —Jessica Hopper
