Born Gold, Kuhrye-oo, Machines of Maybe

When: Sat., March 10, 9:30 p.m. 2012

After nearly wrecking his throat fronting Canadian hardcore outfit snic, Cecil Frena decided to do more singing than screaming, crafting hyperactive electropop as Gobble Gobble—now known as Born Gold. Alongside his amorphous band, Frena overlays huge pop hooks on synth-rich songs built with glitchy production, busy beats and hypnotic grooves that suggest a heroic victory over a video game boss. Though the group's effervescence becomes cloying at times, its theatrical live performances—in which the band practically becomes cheerleaders for its own largely pre-recorded music—remind that it shouldn't be taken so seriously. Kuhrye-oo opens. —Spencer Griffith

Price: $8-9
