Sensory Overload

Mae may or may not be aesthetically pleasurable

Virginia-based Mae has packed together a background in hardcore, a love for Bruce Hornsby, and a wild-eyed aesthetic theory to produce some of the most bombastic rock ever to come out on an indie label. Singer/guitarist Dave Gimenez cracks a boisterous guffaw when it's suggested Mae's luscious debut, Destination: Beautiful, resulted from a musical mad-scientist's formula. But then drummer Jacob Marshall reveals the band's name is an acronym for Multi-sensory Aesthetic Experience. You see, Mae has spent nearly six years devising an artistic experience that uses all five senses. "Right now, we're developing a system for presenting it because it doesn't exist yet," he says. But you can try it for yourself when Mae visits your local watering hole. Open your eyes and dig the band's dreamy, layered music. Do it while sipping a beer, sniffing secondhand smoke, and squeezing through the crowd of sweaty bodies. Mae performs at 5 p.m. Wednesday, March 26, at Spanky's, 500 Clematis St., West Palm Beach. Tickets cost $8; call 561-832-7964. Mae also performs at 8:30 p.m. Friday, March 28, at The Factory, 2674 E. Oakland Park Blvd., Fort Lauderdale. Tickets cost $8; call 954-566-6331.
