Upsilon Acrux have been in existence for a decade in various formations. Their current lineup of dual guitars, bass and drums is a polyrhythmic squirrelly monster. Upsilon Acrux fuses the animalist attack of punk rock with a daring complexity and unusual instrumental techniques and sonorities. The music that results is very powerful but upon further listening, you'll realize that it features strangely beautiful melodies that unfurl like some anaerobic Martian flower. Boldly navigating the modern musical territory between Boulez and Beck for over a decade, Los Angeles Polar Goldie Cats have earned a sizable amount of New Music street cred, with a previous album produced by Nels Cline. Our friendly felines have played with many notables through their illustrious career, including Thurston Moore, Cat Power, Blonde Redhead, Boredoms, and Melt Banana to mew a few. The opening set is the quartet of Henry Kaiser (guitar), Chris Muir (synth/electronics), Danielle DeGruttola (cello) and Weasel Walter (percussion).
