MUSIC: It's a night of fuzzy, experimental psych rock at the Hemlock, featuring Maserati, who combination of repetitive pulse and '70s psych-rock create "a sort of imaginary soundtrack to car chase scenes," Kenseth Thibideau, whose work is described as "restrained and textured, precise with a vein of sentimentality allowed to trickle in," and Glaciers, who utilize loud guitars, reverb, space echo, tape loops, pounding drums, and throbbing bass.
