The musical entity known as oOoOO is Chris Dexter, a Bay Area producer who makes "witch house," a blend of hip-hop, creeped-out electronica and experimental noise. Dexter's fare is probably too slow for dancing, but it's just right for a hallucinogenic...

This surely looks like a fun bill: In the headline slot, coed duo Math the Band soups up its rowdy emo-punk with a caffeinated electropop engine—imagine a goofier, more unhinged Matt and Kim. Warming up the stage you have punk-steeped marching band the...
The Denzels do their crisp, hooky, reverbed-out thing in the ’Burg. The local indie-pop trio isn't out to break any new ground, but it sounds mighty comfy in its chosen niche.
