Here’s what’s going on this week. One general thing is CMU Spring Carnival is Thurs-Sun. Usually fun to roll through that. Sometimes the headliners are really good, but this year it’s Mac Miller and Iconia Pop. Kind of strange for CMU, but people watching is always fun. 7PM on Friday on the lawn.

Lazercrunk is a club night that takes place the second friday of every month at the Brillobox, in Pittsburgh, PA.
The idea of the night is to mix up fun, cutting edge post-genre dance music of all styles without boundaries.
[[ 21+ // $8 cover ]] [[ A-OK is a party for everyone, by everyone. No attitudes. Only open minds. A club where you forget everything going on outside of the walls, and we lose our minds together as one. For the third round, we’re going to get a little weirder. We’re going to challenge you musically. Ready to go on a trip with us? ]]

Deadbeat is someone we’ve all been looking forward to booking for quite some time. He is Scott Monteith, an adopted Berliner via Montreal who has been releasing his own special blend of dub laden, minimal electronics since 2000 for labels such as Cynosure, Intr_version, Revolver, and Scape.
He’s performed at some of the world’s most respected festivals, including Barcelona’s Sonar, Berlin’s Transmediale, and Montreal’s own Mutek. Whether crafting quirky techno, or rumbling heavy dub, Scott continually creates music that honors the past beyond empty tribute or cultural appropriation, by infusing the digital tools of the present with a little of the magic known as human imperfection.
Container, the Providence-based, noise-techno producer, and head of the cassette label ‘I Just Live Here’, is a staple in the American noise underground. Gaining recognition with ‘LP’, his vinyl debut released on Spectrum Spools, Ren Schofield is now a highly demanded artist whose singular brand of cacophonous, hardware-based techno is built around undulating tones, furious gabba-like speeds and slower rhythmic arrangements alike. Schofield’s part of a sonic dialogue includes American labels such as Future Times and L.I.E.S that help bridge the gap between noise and dance.
Be prepared to get weird.
