Sound and Chaos

Tue., Oct. 21, 7 p.m.
Sound and Chaos
Martin Bisi opened BC Studio in Brooklyn’s Gowanus neighborhood in 1979 and found himself at the intersection of the city’s new, radical forms of music. Along with Bill Laswell, he started producing music for early hip-hop artists such as Afrika Bambaataa. Simultaneously, Bisi was steeped in the downtown experimental rock sensibility exemplified by artists like Lydia Lunch and DNA, who then inspired Sonic Youth and Swans. The latter two bands made seminal records at BC, along with countless others. Today, the effects of gentrification threaten the studio’s existence. Sound & Chaos — a new documentary about Bisi and his studio, which screens at the New Parkway Theater (474 24th St., Oakalnd) on Tuesday — tells the story. After the screening, Bisi will perform his own left-field rock music at The Stork Club (2330 Telegraph Ave., Oakland) on a bill with local experimentalists Grex and Third Thursday Band, plus Savage Riposte from France.

Perfume Genius

Tue., Oct. 21, 7:30 p.m.
415-771-1421
Perfume Genius
Mike Hadreas’ first two albums as Perfume Genius — Learning and Put Your Back N 2 It — combine lilting, frail vocal melodies with spare piano accompaniment. Hadreas’ artful arrangement of limited elements and deeply confessional lyrics made the albums feel devastating. For this year’s Too Bright, which he will perform on Tuesday at The Independent (628 Divisadero St., San Francisco), Hadreas got a new look. The cover depicts him with a sour facial expression and wearing a golden sequined top, like a resilient glam gladiator. The music is embellished and expanded with harsh keyboards and aggressive vocals. The lyrics follow suit. No family is safe/When I sashay, he proclaims on “Queen.” In the fantastic video, Hadreas struts down a boardroom table in heels. His early strengths in craft and compositional finesse meet audacity and pride on Too Bright. The effect is devastating — and exhilarating. $16, $18
