UCSD SPRINGFEST

8 pm on the CUBES

Ear-bending and danceable electronic music rules the new outdoor stage at Space 4 Art in the East Village. This incredible space will play host to all laptop band Bitwise Operators and the abstract, pummeling dance music of DJ Joe Mariglio, just back in San Diego after a tour of Australia that included a stop at Sidney's cutting edge Electrofringe festival. And if you happen to love the acoustic guitar traditionalism of John Fahey, the warm and expressive glitch-hop of LA's beat scene, and the chop-and-screw vocals of Kid A-era Radiohead, you should definitely hear Creosota, a new San Diego band that follows acts like The Books in merging folk and electronica into futurist-primitive soundscapes.
