Dance With the Dead
Electronic duo Dance With the Dead, who’ll stage a night-before-Halloween show on October 30 certain to be filled with dancing dead. Orange County oddballs Justin Pointer and Tony Kim have a new album due in mid-August, Loved to Death, which sounds for all the world like the soundtrack to a movie never made by Dario Argento, John Carpenter, and Brian Eno, at least judging from the half-dozen preview tracks so far released. To put on the headphones and press play is to induce a total 8-track flashback of analog synths, robot talking guitars, and oh so much corduroy and cowbell on the dance floor. Which is what makes synthwave acts such a novelty in a concert setting like Brick by Brick, where you’ll find the unusual pairing of open shirt partyers dying to dance staring face-to-beard with leather-clad metal heads who’ll bang their heads into a concussion, but wouldn’t shake their booties if you threatened to jam a gun between their butt cheeks.
