Though they sound nothing alike, Matthew and the Arrogant Sea and the electronic duo Florene probably have the most in common on this bill, a completely and delightfully eclectic hodgepodge even by Denton booking standards.
Live improvisation plays heavily into both bands' performances, so on a given night you never know exactly what you're going to get from them. But where MATAS might stretch out one of the band's gentle, dreamy folk-pop songs into a 10-minute jam, Florene's Gavin Guthrie and Aaron Mollet are more likely to loop screams or the sound of a microphone hitting the floor into hypnotic ambient noise. Seeing the two together is reason enough for the trip north on Interstate 35E, but add in '90s noise-rock lovers (and, probably as a consequence, Steve Albini favorites) Record Hop and Spitfire Tumbleweeds guitarist Kody R. Jackson and you've got a bill that showcases just how diverse Denton's music scene is.
