    Coheed & Cambria, Deafheaven

    Lead vocalist Claudio Sanchez’s high-pitched yelping and peculiar enunciation of simple words paired with intoxicating progressive rock riffs polarizes like pineapple on pizza. “Jess-eeee, bad boy! … Jesssss-eeee!” San Francisco band Deafheaven (“In Blur”) opens.

    Tisakorean, Diego Money, Texas Boyz, Yoshi the Plug [control room]

    TisaKorean turned 11 the same month that Atlanta snap pioneers D4L released their infamously idiotic/gloriously goofy ear-parasite “Laffy Taffy.” This fact makes total sense when you listen to the Houston rapper/producer’s music – a chiming, chaotic vision of Aughts-era ringtone rap as pure pixie-stick id, with aesthetics derived from MP3 blogs and nascent social media sites. Most perplexing, this proudly adolescent voice in hip-hop is nearly 30. Of course, age is but a number; this is music for anyone who sees no meaningful difference between a stripper’s pole and the kind you’d slide down on the playground.

    Window Dressing XXVII: Sunlight and Bone

    Damian Noll uses a magnifying lens to draw with sunlight, solar-tattooing his designs onto bones acquired from local hunters, butchers, or road kills. For a limited time, you can see these beauties on display, 24/7, in ICOSA's front window at Canopy – but don't miss the artist reception!
    Through May 22. Artist reception: Fri., May 19, 7-9pm
