7/31: I See Stars at Peabody's

by

I See Stars are weird, but they’re also kinda brilliant. The underage Michigan sextet’s debut CD, 3-D, throws screamo, disco beats and a vocoder into a sonic blender and comes up with something thoroughly schizophrenic but pleasurable in a way most modern metal can’t even imagine. They even feature Cleveland hip-hop legend Bizzy Bone as a guest star — he delivers a high-speed rap on the electro-club track “Sing This!” I See Stars’ songs shift at light speed — from mosh pit-friendly breakdowns to ’80s-style synth flourishes, from T-Pain-style Autotune crooning to screamo catharsis, from live drumming to programmed techno loops. It’s a sound only a bunch of caffeine-crazed teenagers could have created, and watching them try to pull it all together live is bound to be entertaining. Emarosa, Burden of a Day, About Last Night, In Fear and Faith, and Broadway open at 6 p.m. at Peabody’s (2045 E. 21st St., 216.776.9999). Tickets: $13. — Phil Freeman
