A year ago, the folks at Electronic Exhibition announced a monthly series showcasing touring artists and San Anto artists (working hard on their computers and Moogs) that weren’t getting proper exposure. A year in, the group is celebrating a sucessful birthday, with music from Baltimore’s Odwalla88, Brooklyn’s Chicklette and SA’s Calico Club. Like Iggy Pop’s “Nightclubbing” or anything Grace Jones ever touched, Calico Club’s Permanent Night is a record about the bar as not only a lifestyle but a creative opportunity: the chance to perform in posture, dress and dance even if you’re not onstage. To soundtrack these ideas, PleasureFaces and GALACTICAT of Calico Club placed together an exciting EP of synth and dance floor production. A poetry slam set to vocal samples and orchestra hits, Odwalla88 is a disorienting combo of noise rap and performance art. On “New Tiger,” Chicklette coils up with a gloomy and chanting trap number, laughing with their finger on the trigger. With DJ sets by PopGuy of Executive Realness.
