Seze Devres's anything-goes (sonically speaking) shindig observes a birthday—and the celebration, as you would expect, boasts appearances from a fab lineup of music makers. Headed by DFA's resident wizard, Gavin Russom, and multimedia artist Viva Ruiz (and featuring Tyler Pope and Jaiko Suzuki, among other NYC underground notables), the Crystal Ark purveys a kind of paganistic synth-pop that's alternately hypnotic and funky; the band's live sets are by turns awe-inspiring, funny and weird. Neurotic Drum Band—the duo of John Selway and DJ Ulysses, responsible for one of the ’00s' best house tunes, "Robotic Hypnotic Adventure"—supplies a late-night DJ set; Analog Soul's Jacky Sommer and DatKat kick the night off with a wide-ranging set of their own.
