Tonight: Dr. Fadeaway

Tonight local DIY space Sugar City hosts a profoundly compelling  lineup of electronic acts featuring Detroit dream pop band Dr. Fadeaway, Medusa and Berlin Boys. The brainchild of SoCal native Alathea Reese, Dr. Fadeaway and their debut EP Cosa Rimane floats in on tight hooks, New Wave synths and jangling guitars that go rather nicely with vocals pleasingly reminiscent of Tom Tom Club and Memory House’s Denise Nouvion.

Opening the show will be local neophytes Berlin Boys, of which little is known; and dark wave mastermind Medusa, who released her excellent sophomore album Rosie last month, exactly nine months after her staggering debut LP Residuals, albums redolent with tight beats, darkly sweet synth lines, layers and layers of sound , and cathedralesque vocal performances that are pure headphone candy. Doors are at 7pm and cover is $5.
