This wild Friday night bill at Public Assembly is headlined by Cut Hands, the new project of "power electronics" pioneer William Bennett. With his 80s outfit Whitehouse, Bennett invented a fearsome, unpleasant rain of noise and transgressive imagery that would prove extremely influential to new generations of musicians under the influence of extremity. With Cut Hands, Bennett gives tribute to his own formative fascination with African music, resulting in what he refers to as "Afro Noise." Strong support comes from the borough's best dark synth band, Xeno and Oaklander, and its scariest bunch of punks, Pop. 1280.
