THE CRYSTAL METHOD
9 p.m., Revolution. $20 adv./$25 d.o.s.
Hey, remember electronica? The beat-driven movement that happened around the time of the dot-com money bubble, that promised us occasional spiritual transcendence in a cornfield near the airport? Yeah, me neither. But Los Angeles club overlords and American propagators of the originally Euro trend the Crystal Method certainly do, and haven't stopped recording since their 1997 debut. They have in fact, remained pretty busy, scoring soundtracks and releasing the occasional DJ mix on top of a regular album schedule. The Method perform less as spacesuit-clad DJs in a box (see: Punk, Daft) and more as charismatic, spinning rock stars, responsible for some of the most omnipresent rock remixes (Filter, Nine Inch Nails) of the '90s and early double aughts, so expect high energy and improvisation on the decks. The concert comes as part of Revolution's monthly DJ series, Zodiac.
