'Tis the season for modular synthesizers at Spacebar's Moloko Plus showcase


  • Ginger Leigh
The week of Christmas is usually a dead time for live performances of the non-holiday variety, but the new monthly Moloko Plus showcase is defying the odds this week with a show devoted to electronic sounds and modular synthesizers. Though the vibe certainly falls under the “experimental” umbrella, the artists booked for this inaugural night stray much closer to the ambient side of that designation, eschewing much of the abrasiveness usually associated with experimental electronic shows. The synths are droney and the beats sparse, creating an appropriate soundtrack for the deserted midnight streets that usually accompany the holidays. Stick around after the early show for an edition of Spacebar’s signature Bring Your Own Vinyl night, where you can use their professional turntables to show off your own taste in records, experimental or otherwise.
