5-28: Holy Fuck at the Grog Shop



536e/1242850403-holyfuck.jpgWith lap-pop and electro-pop running wild in indie circles, it’s hard to remember that electronic-based artists were once known for dark, experimental cuts that were made for daydream bedrooms and sweaty dance floors. Holy Fuck bring electronic music back to its roots. With ragged, uptempo drumming and crazy keyboards — as well as a bass attack that alternates between Nine Inch Nails and Nintendo — Holy Fuck keep things dirty and invigorating. The group’s most recent album, 2007’s LP, features everything from giddy fuzz-thumpers (“Super Inuit”) to M83-styled shoegaze (“Lovely Alien”) and screechy disco bangers (“Royal Gregory”). Eclectic and energized, Holy Fuck are easily one of the most exciting groups in electronic music right now. Crocodiles and Company Picnic open at 8 pm at the Grog Shop (2785 Euclid Heights Blvd., Cleveland Hts., 216.321.5588, grogshop.gs). Tickets: $10 advance, $12 at the door. — Matt Whelihan
