You won’t find anything about this in last week’s GO! Magazine, because I learned about it right after that issue went to press. And you won’t find anything in this week’s GO! either, because by the time that hits the streets, the show will be over.
This is a powerhouse bill of live electronica. Conspirator includes two guys from electro-jam giants Disco Biscuits (plus Chris Michetti of RAQ and Lane Shaw of Pnuma Trio), while Break Science features Adam Deitch, a wizard of a drummer who has manned the sticks for the John Scofield Band and Lettuce and has produced, oh, you know, just Justin Timberlake, 50 Cent and Snoop Dogg.
Neither act is just some dudes crouched behind a laptop. Both are live-band electronica; Conspirator specializes in glassy, ultra-cool beat music that soars and stutters in a way that’s somehow both mellow and urgent at the same time. Break Science mines a similar vein, but in a more aggressive way. Deitch and his keyboarding partner Borahm Lee make music that’s more menacing, more bottom-heavy, more drum & bass- and dubstep-flavored. You know that Bassnectar / Pretty Lights / Glitch Mob sound that’s getting to be huge at festivals? That’s Break Science’s part of town.
Conspirator, with Break Science; 9:30 p.m. Thursday, doors open 8:30 p.m.; $15, available in advance at www.bendticket.com; Silver Moon Brewing & Taproom, 24 N.W. Greenwood Ave., Bend; www.silvermoonbrewing.com or 541-317-0700.
