It’s a particularly Mills 50 phenomenon – well, an Uncle Lou’s & Grumpy’s phenomenon – that sometimes touring acts of different aesthetic stripes converge on the same show as a kind of DIY supercard. And this Friday’s show is very much that. First off, you’ve got two very heavy noise contenders from abroad. We’re over the moon about the chance to see Japan’s Self Toxication live; he creates subtle yet hellish vocal noise from his mouth, a microphone and a small battery of electronics strapped to his chest. Mexico’s Le Trash Can is top-shelf, low-end noise collage. Then you’ve got two St. Petersburg electronic upstarts, Alex Nicosia and Bushi, both very promising new and creative faces in the dance/electro-pop underground. The night is bolstered by locals Formaldehydra, Alien Witch, Aaron’s Home and Bonez. Take your vitamins; this one’s for the night owls.

with Le Trash Can, Alex Nicosia, Bushi, Formaldehydra, Alien Witch, Aaron’s Home | 9 p.m. Friday, April 19 | Grumpy’s Underground Lounge, 1018 N. Mills Ave. | 407-237-9180 | facebook.com/grumpysunderground | donations encouraged
