Tonight! Viernes Swirls Up the Night at Propaganda

Viernes is an experimental electronic duo from the Orlando

area keyed into the atmospheric lining of the machines used to create

the music. The opening of "Swimmer's Ear" featured on recent release Sinister Devices

plays like a winter's carnival ride for the ears before growing into an

undulating and magical sonic landscape. Nothing else they've put out is

too far removed from the implications of that first track's title -- a

little heady, a little watery, not unlike waves flowing directly from

the sea into one's body.

Filling out the evening at Propaganda: Orlando's Attached Hands creating

delicate alien noises you can dream to; Tumbleweave's pulsing

digi-dance is like a series of explosions; Hear Hums' spacy noise tends

to swirl around you -- it's less a concert, more an experience. And

then, of course, there are the Jameses, who will surely cut into all the

pretty, noisy ambience with their face-melting capabilities, just to

mix things up. All this and it won't cost you much either. Get there

early; that's a lot of magic to twirl around in such a small space.

Viernes, with Hear Hums, the Jameses, Attached Hands, and Tumbleweave. 8

p.m. Friday, July 30, at Propaganda, 6 S. J St., Lake Worth. Call
