Man or Astro-Man?

Experiment Zero (Touch & Go)

The last great satellite launched in Man or Astro-Man?'s space race, 1996's Experiment Zero continues the Auburn, Ala., oddballs' sci-fi surf at terminal velocity. Of particular note are eleki-riptide "Test Driver," a mostly faithful cover of Japanese surf icon Takeshi Terauchi's 1966 classic; plus a Talking Heads nod, "Television Man"; and "DNI," a Morricone-meets-Dick Dale shoot-out. (Sat., 9:30pm, Levitation tent)
