Joshua Cotterino w/ Dan Rico, Banny Grove, Minthill

When: Tue., April 18, 9 p.m. 2017

On his Facebook page Joshua Cotterino lists several influences. Some, like Madonna and Prince, are fairly mainstream. Others — Cabaret Voltaire, Nina Hagen — are glorious loose cannons. It’s those latter, unjustly obscure artists that hint at Cotterino’s sound. Jump down his sonic rabbit hole and you’ll hear wonderfully cheesy synths, fuzzy vocals and sound effects ranging from flying saucer bleeps to squealing devil babies. All in the service of candy-coated pop songs.

Price: $5.
