Ed Schrader's Music Beat, Lilac Shadows, Naked Naps

When: Sun., July 28, 9:30 p.m. 2013

Baltimore scene magnate Ed Schrader stands erect above a single tom drum, a drumstick in each hand and a microphone shoved in front of his face. A few feet away, bassist Devlin Rice confronts Schrader at an askance angle, another microphone at his mouth and his 10 fingers at the ready. When they start playing, they don't really stop, blasting maniacally through a series of No Wave paroxysms about distress and disorder, conviction and caring. Rice's tweaked, bulbous bass tone, Schrader's unrepentant drum abuse and their instantaneous gang vocals make the entire enterprise sound much larger than a minimal duo. Think Suicide on a James Chance rage, and then get out of the way. Lilac Shadows and Naked Naps open. —Grayson Currin
