    Objekt, CCL, Nick McDonnough, M. Shogi

    A bunch of goofy, made-up genre tags slapped onto the Bandcamp bios for Objekt and CCL mean both twist past stifling dance floor predictability with a bass music aficionado’s flair. Take Objekt, the former band-drumming, Native Instruments-developing, almost-IDM-producing DJ born in Japan, raised in Belgium, and learned in the ways of audio tech. He can split an EP with Dopplereffekt, go respectably ambient, and swerve dancehall with swag to spare. Meanwhile, CCL sorts their rekordbox collection with playlist titles like “Big Bassline Cowgirl Breaks.” Local support, Nick McDonnough and m. shogi, pull no punches.

    Hot Luck Fest Day 1 afterparty w/ God Shell, Venus Twins, Blank Hellscape, Rose Ceremony

    This afterparty for night one of the Hot Luck foodie fest goes heavy and hard. Austin quartet God Shell blasts dark, downtuned, experimental metal with dual vocalists (one blackened, one deathly) and a penchant for deconstructing the genre’s elements, as they executed brilliantly on glitchy 2022 EP Seven Trumpets. Meanwhile, just-bass-’n’-drums noisy punk imperfectionists Venus Twins are physically incapable of being boring with their frenetic theatricality and broken cymbal recklessness. Ahead of them, Blank Hellscape conjures a street sound of banging beats, distorted vocals, and headphone-shredding sonics after Rose Ceremony kicks off with heavy screamo.
    Thu., May 25, 10pm. $10 cover, free w/ Hot Luck pass (21+).
