SELF DEFENCE SISTEM
9:30 p.m. White Water Tavern. $5.
This is a kick-off event for the Little Rock Horror Picture Show, and after listening to a few tracks from Self Defence Sistem, that seems appropriate. The duo — DJs Cam Holifield and T.J. Deeter — make electronic music that flirts with the shimmering and blissful and dreamscape-y, but settles down long-term with the drone-y and glitch-y and dread-filled. Think Flying Lotus, Burial, Pantha Du Prince and the like, but a bit sparser sounding.
Also performing will be Andy Warr and J.R. Top. Admission is free if you've got an LRHPS pass.
