Shibboleth/Magic Cyclops/Dutch Treats (Double Wide): Magic Cyclops just played RGRS, and he'll be bringing his one-man/one-joke act to the Double Wide, which makes a lot of thematic sense. Shibboleth does what more bands should do, go instrumental. Hey, at least that's one less thing you have a chance of completely fucking up. The Dutch Treats is John from Sloppyworld's solo project and it looks like he'll be a good match for Magic Cyclops.

Menomena/Mom/All Smiles (Granada): I think Menomena might get a little undue credit for being "experimental", when they are far from it to my ears. I am, however, familiar enough with music biz propaganda to understand that might not necessarily be the band's fault. They do seem better than most indie-pop acts, high concept or otherwise. This will be a good show for Mom to open, with their celebrated violin-heavy atmospherics. All Smiles is a Grandaddy side project. I'll let you figure the rest of that one out.

Lost Generation with Wanz Dover and Ineka (Fallout Lounge): From Wanz:
New stuff from Burial, Blackstrobe, Diiplo, Prinzhorn Dance School, Simian Mobile Disco, Data, Surkin, kaman leung, LCD Soundsystem, Tayo meets Acid Rockers, Skream, Loefah, Ben Klock, Battles, Pole and much much more.........tonight is gonna be a step above normal. Our guest DJ tonight is Sean Vargas.

80's Night WIth DJ G (Hailey's): I heard this guy talking about Italo disco waaaay before they sold comps of the stuff at Costco.

I think menomena gets the "experimental" tag so often because of their production and arrangement techniques, not because of any sonic or structural qualities of their music.
