Giving you the music a day early:
Florida’s Lighthouse Music states their influences as Bob Dylan, Tom Waits, Miles Davis, James Brown, Mozart and Philip Glass. So how does one fit all those influences into a musical genre? They don’t. Lighthouse Music warps all those influences and creates a new sonic tapestry, with all five members rotating instruments (brass, percussion, woodwinds, turntables, accordion, synths, bass, guitar and more) throughout a performance, creating classical or rock melodies that are somehow powered by a funk rhythm. Check it out at Stickyz. The music starts at 8:30 p.m. with the music of Loud Valley and their “symphonic mood swing” music. Cover is $5 for the all-ages show.
Attack Attack! is one of those bands that is hard defining. Call it metalcore with elements of electronica. And please avoid the crabcore label as it’s no genre at all; just mindless Internet message board chatter. The group — Caleb Shomo, Andrew Whiting, John Holgado and Andrew Wetzel — comes to Downtown Music with their electronica-powered metal. The music starts at 8 p.m. with tickets $13 in advance and $15 day of show. The doors open at 7 p.m. with a trio of local acts performing first: Through The Looking Glass, Words Like Waves and My Hands To War.
