DJ Dog Dick, Mexcellent, Bonglestar, Archaeli

When: Sat., June 7, 10 p.m. 2014

The near-universal reaction to first encounters with the work of Brooklyn-via-Baltimore musician Max Eisenberg, best known as DJ Dog Dick, is "What kind of ridiculous name is that?" It's a proper response: Eisenberg's music is a hard-to-track, easy-to-love mix of lascivious raps and surreal singing, delivered over a broken bed of noise textures and hip-hop beats. In a moment where being a new band can often seem foremost about finding new ways to combine old ideas, Eisenberg is a bit of a transgressive wizard. He's able to pair honking tubas with Frodo jokes and demented hooks, breezy pop refrains with damaged synths and half-drunk crooning. Ridiculous? Absolutely. Stupid? Not at all. With Mexcellent, Bonglestar and Archaeli. —Grayson Haver Currin
