Buke and Gass + Talk Normal

The latest from Buke and Gass, Riposte, offers an infectious marriage of angularity and exuberance. The local art-pop duo's customized implements (a baritone ukulele and a hybrid guitar-bass) may seem rarefied, but its wide-eyed energy could win anyone over. Starting things off is shadowy, martial noise-punk duo Talk Normal.
