Pataphysics (album release)

Nearly two decades into Pat Healy’s output of breakneck, absurdist synth-punk, the third LP from his quartet Pataphysics drops Friday. The Future of Synth Rock yields 29 tracks of whirring, headbanging, Eighties nerviness, following the locals’ Computer Chair EP from earlier this year, which jolted 10 songs onto a 7-inch record. Free show and beer runs 5-6pm, no openers. – Libby Webster
