Even if you’re not into punk/psychedelic/prog that’s heavy on sci-fi sounds, Human Eye are worth seeing, if only to find out what they’re gonna do onstage next. Whether the Detroit band is working with robotic snakes or making a mess with paint-filled balloons, you’re sure to leave the show amazed, scarred or wearing a different-colored shirt. The group formed after singer Tim Vulgar’s former band, the Clone Defects, called it quits. Human Eye released their self-titled debut in 2005 and followed with last year’s Fragments of the Universe Nurse. Vulgar calls his group’s sound “alien rock,” but it’s really a flurry of musical ideas — including heavy synthesizers, trippy dance beats, some glam and super-throaty vocals. It all sounds over-the-top and flashy, but songs like “Rare Little Creature” really wouldn’t work with anything less. This Moment in Black History, the Deathers and Puffy Areolas open at 9 p.m. at Now That’s Class (11213 Detroit Ave., 216.221.8756). Tickets: $5. — Brittany Moseley
