A killer quadruple bill of visionary pop sounds! DEASTRO: the electro-rock marvel whose pop music and live shows have been getting better and better! Randolph Chabot Jr. started to make electronic music when he was 13 at his home in Sterling Heights, MI. He finished his first album that year despite the ecstatic, aural trauma it caused his mother. He studied youth development in college with the intent of becoming a social worker, dropping out to pursue music full time. He formed an electro band called Veleciraptor, which inspired the ideas for his current synthesized projects: Our Brother the Megazord and Deastro, which try to blur the lines between electronic and acoustic music. SCHOOL OF SEVEN BELLS: founded by ex-Secret Machines guitarist Ben Curtis and featuring twin-sister singers Alejandra and Claudia Deheza, this GHOSTLY INTERNATIONAL band slips easily between epochs — laptop sorcery, medieval polyphony, the rhythmic turmoil of Public Image Ltd.'s 1981 album, Flowers of Romance — with smart hooks and the Dehezas' alluring vocals, liberally greased with reverb. JAVELINS and 800BELOVED play too. All ages.
