Don't be fooled by Claire Boucher's alias, Grimes—far from sordid, her output tends toward dreamy, floaty, dancey soundscapes, especially when her sighing voice comes in. Aside from her fastidiously fractured synth-pop (check out Visions, a widely acclaimed recent effort on 4AD), this Montreal auteur is active in dance, film and visual art. Should make for an extremely au courant and compelling live show. She's joined by Myths on Thu 25 (with Mykki Blanco) and Sat 27 (with Blue Hawaii), while Elite Gymnastics support on Fri 26 and Sun 28 (with Majical Cloudz).
