Upcoming: Brainfeeder Sessions with Kode 9 and special guests
Considering how many of the contributors to Pop and Hiss are ardent admirers of the mutant bass music booming out of Hyperdub's offices, we'd be remiss not to mention Sunday's installment of the Brainfeeder Sessions featuring the London label's boss, Kode 9. Redefining the "intelligent" in intelligent dance music, the PhD in philosophy from the University of Warwick will be doing an audio and visual presentation of his new book, "Sonic Warfare: Sound, Affect, and The Ecology of Fear, recently released by MIT Press. Additionally, there will be a screening of the 1995 Afro-Futurism documentary "The Last Angel of History."
Starting at 9 p.m. at the Downtown Independent, Brainfeeder artist Dr. Strangeloop will be there to add visuals and to premiere his live sci-fi feature, "2010 (or) How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Technological Singularity." Expect something well beyond Power Point and stereotypical stoner screensaver graphics. The evening will also feature special guests, plus sets from KNXWLEDGE and the Los Angeles debut of the newest Brainfeeder signing Jeremiah Jae. This promises to be the only music show this side of an Aesop Rock/Mountain Goats double billing where bringing a dictionary is recommended.
Sunday, Brainfeeder Sessions at the Downtown Independent, 251 S. Main St. 9 p.m. $12
