Arts Too Floored to Dance
Seattle-area heads into electronic music’s stranger manifestations should check out Manchester DJ Rob Hall, who’s been booked to play the Baltic Room’s Oscillate weekly tonight. A member of Gescom and boss of the mysterious and excellent Skam Records empire, Hall opened for Autechre last year at Neumo’s and spun a devastating set of leftfield techno, third-eye-poking IDM, and five-dimensional hiphop that perfectly set the scene for his English pals’ 22nd-century [sic] electro. Hall makes a living “finding music nobody else knows about and playing it to them in nightclubs.” (Sounds like my dream job.)
Also on the bill: Syphillis Sauna and Cbaba, plus residents Greg Skidmore and Electrosect. Action starts at 9 p.m. at 1207 E Pine St, 206-625-4444.
