Stardust hosts boundary-pushing artists on their way to Miami's International Noise Conference

For live music devotees in search of the shock of the new, this week is one to get out there, with a dizzying array of artists playing in Orlando on their way down to Miami for the International Noise Conference. This particular bill pairs two performance-art firebrands – Iowa’s Real Dominic (above) and Savannah’s Rainé Rainé – with locals Channel 83 and Mother Juno (both also playing INC Miami, incidentally) for a night of outsider performance par excellence. Real Dom combines plaintive torch with hyperactive electronics and clubland chops for pure seedy glamour. Rainé Rainé, a longtime scene-builder, LGBTQ+ activist, artist and musician, balances activism and aesthetics masterfully with their multimedia sensory attack. Combining cutting anger at straight society with a surrealist sensibility and fearsome compositional skills, their work is timely and ahead of its time all at once.

with Mother Juno, Channel 83 | 8 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 5 | Stardust Video & Coffee, 1842 E. Winter Park Road | 407-623-3393 | | $6
