Kayo Dot @ Eclectic, with Ben Seretan and The Japanese

Poster says it all (and kinda reminds me of this album cover, for some reason), but click past the jump for some more info on the bands playing:

Kayo Dot is an American avant-garde rock/experimental music group that was formed in 2003 by Toby Driver. They released their debut album Choirs of the Eye on John Zorn’s Tzadik Records label that year. Tzadik’s descriptive label on that album reads:

Kayo Dot powerfully integrates elements of modern classical composition with the layers of guitars and vocals more common to rock and metal. With a compositional map that is strict in form yet malleable in execution, Kayo Dot uses a vast array of instrumentation to create an exciting convergence of violence and serenity.

Ben Seretan ’10 is always running around making pretty music. You might have heard him last year playing with Duchampion, or winning Awesomefest with Sweaty Boys, or making people weep into their paninos at Red and Black. His songs are catchy, fun, and technically tight, but when he breaks through his veneer of restraint, he has a whole lotta vocal and guitar power to release. His musical persona is a hardened wild west cow herder dressed proudly in Donna Summers’s favorite sequined dress. He’ll make listeners feel nostalgic for an ill-defined Old West as he performs under a disco ball. The man has a solid stage presence.

—The Japanese . . . well, yeah. Also, here’s their newly created Facebook page.

    want to be loud, obnoxious, and just plain rude at this show like you were at xiu xiu?

    expect harsh words and possibly a bloody nose.
