@ Blank Space / 2847 Cherokee St.
8 p.m. / $5 / 21+

Expect gnarly textures and digital brain-banging. Visual oddities warp your senses while the sounds make you wily. Cold basement be damned, this is a hot night of noise.

@ mushmaus / 2700 Cherokee St.
9 p.m. / $5 / all ages

Ambient sounds born from free-form jazz and other improvised music arrive bare and stripped down. CONSONANT DRIFT focuses on the solo performer, merging members from Ou Où, Messy Jiverson and CaveofswordS to deliver brief, singular pieces of new music


SLUT RIVER (Iowa City, IA) featured in the video above
Sioux City Pete & the Beggars (Iowa City, IA)
Maximum Effort
Spending Habits

@ Chromozone
9 p.m. / donation$ / all ages

Jams collide with garage and hardcore, post and present. Slut River brings feverish drums and static-drenched guitar work from Iowa City. Maximum Effort spreads the seeds of paranoia while Spending Habits slings Fugazi-esque post punk.

Tone Rodent posted a new video for their song "Down" featured on their latest 7 inch, a split with ROSCO aka Sterling Roswell. Peep that:
