The work that Planned Parenthood does across the country is in the paradoxical position of being both increasingly essential and increasingly under fire; a chance to go beyond lip service support and to actually contribute, tied to incredible music is like a triple score. You’re in luck –Wednesday’s benefit show at Will’s Pub gathers three of the most exciting femme-led electronic acts currently active in Florida, and pairs them with readings from Alexia Clarke of the stellar Phosphene Girl zine. Regular readers of this publication will no doubt be familiar with the works of fast-rising projects Tiger Fawn and Lush Agave and their unique combinations of the avant-garde with very different eras of popular music. New to the eyes and ears of Orlando music fans, however, will be Tampa’s Naga, a future-forward collision of experimental electronics and modern R&B shimmy, courtesy of visual artist Pia Love and SPQR’s Colby Smith. Naga’s music is all gleaming neon, tropical fauna and Miami pirate radio signals ghosting in and out. The duo are true originals, equally at home playing the International Noise Conference in Miami as they are covering Frank Ocean. Get in on the ground floor with this incredible group before albums come out on Hot Releases and More Records. One hundred percent of all door proceeds goes to Planned Parenthood, as well as proceeds from a raffle that includes prizes from Park Ave CDs, Enzian Theater, Illuminated Paths and more. Worth your time, your ears and your money.
