BT with VHS or Beta

Thursday, March 30 at 9 p.m. Oz Nightclub (300 Monsanto Avenue, Sauget, Illinois)


At one time, BT looked like the successor to Moby in the DJ-goes-rock-star oeuvre, what with the starry-eyed electro-pop found on 1999's Movement in Still Life. But after the lukewarm reception to the rock songs of 2003's Emotional Technology, BT has returned to his roots: This Oz set is billed as a live remix set with a "laptop symphony." VHS or Beta will also be on hand to induce booty-shaking — although via their skills on the decks, and not the post-punk decadence they craft on disc.
