    Nine night honoring Lee "Scratch" Perry w/ Subatomic Sound System + Screechy Dan

    In his laboratory, the Black Ark studio, Lee “Scratch” Perry changed the laws of physics, increasing the gravitational pull of recorded music with a hypnotic focus on bass and drums riddims. When the vastly influential dub visionary, who passed away in late August, appeared locally – with electric red hair, multitudes of finger rings, a ball cap crown full of shiny doo-dads, and an eternal puff of cannabis smoke – Flamingo Cantina was his spot. The Austin reggae holy land now welcomes Scratch’s band, NYC’s Subatomic Sound System, for a posthumous tribute with Screechy Dan on the mic.

    Blue Öyster Cult

    Now 54, Blue Öyster Cult leveraged last October to levitate the onetime Long Islanders’ 14th studio spell since 1972. Only their second LP this millennium, The Symbol Remains takes its title from the hard rock occultists’ Revolution by Night rumbler “The Shadow of California,” but can’t quite keep pace with 2001’s Curse of the Hidden Mirror, an easily overlooked grace note in a thrilling and thinking man’s catalog of psychic seances. Donald “Buck Dharma” Roeser’s “Box in My Head” could slot on his 1982 solo sleeper Flat Out, while Eric Bloom’s “Alchemist” taps discographical alpha “Astronomy,” both survivors still leading the Godzilla tamers.

    Lauren Lo Sung, Lizette Roman, Aiola

    UK producer/DJ Lauren Lo Sung spins at Revival Coffee, courtesy of Robert Roman’s techno/house label ubiyu, which throws underground outdoor events showcasing international and local loop junkies. That scene bends towards vocal-free, subtly bubbling rhythms perfect to soundtrack hypnotic happenings. Perhaps connected to Lo Sung by the underground Vatos Locos DJ/label network that dips into town, Ubiyu welcomes Lo Sung’s thick tech and upbeat grooves. Opening DJ Lizette Roman (Robert’s sister) is also one of the most dedicated and exciting young techno DJs in Austin now. She’s also moving away soon, so the clock’s ticking.
