Math the Band at Milestone tonight (8/7/2012)

Posted By on Tue, Aug 7, 2012 at 8:16 AM

MATH THE BAND This is the next logical step in Bomb the Music Industry’s hyphy take on ska-punk. By almost fully digitizing pop-punk and reducing it to chiptunes beep and skitter, Math the Band maximizes that already chipmunk-energy genre’s frantic sparkle. With lyrics that offer absurd, often deprecating takes on reality and drum machine-and-synth instrumentation, this duo fits right in with the northeast’s weirdo experimentalism. Much like fellow Providence over-stimulators Lightning Bolt, Math the Band matches its spastic bursts of hyperactive post-post-post-punk with bright pastel colors and Lisa Frank imagery. And much like their neighbors in Baltimore, this band is danceable, digital and ridiculous as shit — though Math the Band seems to have more of a sense of humor than their Wham City counterparts. With MC Lars, Adam Warrock, ThoughtCriminals, DJ Justin “Aswell” Blackwood. $10-$12. 9 p.m. Milestone.
