Jackal & Hyde Bring the Electro-Industrial Pain to Respectable Street

After 12 years, Jackal & Hyde's traverse through aggressive electro

and industrial stylings shows no signs of slowing. Partners Scott

Weiser and Todd Walker's take on the oft-cloned, digitally antagonistic genre is much sought by big names across the disciplines -- Kid Rock, the Genitorturers, and No Doubt

have all enlisted the duo for remixes. The sound is as wonderfully ugly

as their mugs and accompanying hairdos. With time spent in California

and Florida, it's impressive that they've shunned the sunnier aspects of

their lives.

Onstage, Jackal & Hyde do more than just tweak knobs and press

fervently on keys -- they read the crowd well and adapt, almost as though

they want to cause grievous bodily harm on the dance floor. Readying

the crowd for their onslaught will be the alter ego of Larry McCormick, Exzakt, bringing a slightly more techno but equally belligerent approach to the ear-splitting madness.

With Exzakt. 9 p.m. Friday, August 20, at Respectable Street, 518 Clematis St., West Palm Beach. Call 561-832-9999, or click here.
