!!!, Shabazz Palaces

When: Wed., April 18, 9 p.m. 2012

Three exclamation marks signify attention and indulgence. This is exactly what !!! use to entrance their listeners with polyrhythmic party tunes, fitting for an eight-piece experimental collective that formed in Sacramento back in 1996 after an all-nighter of dancing. On last year's Black Up by Shabazz Palaces, chirps and crackles simmer over heaving echoes and dense synths. The sparse "Recollections of the Wraith" samples an oozing female vocal and features a velvety bass that clouds up like a distant exploding bomb. Almost quietly, rapper Ishmael Butler urges, "Clear some space out so we can space out." —Ashleigh Phillips

Price: $14-16
