(Ella Street Social Club, 714 SW 20th Pl) While better known as guitarist for Canadian noise-punk band AIDS Wolf, Alexander Moskos has spent the last decade as an active and pivotal part of the Montreal electronic music scene. Under his moniker Drainolith, he creates textural electronic noise and drone with a wide range of tools, from guitars and synthesizers to consumer electronics. Moskos returns to Portland on his second US tour of 2011 with a new 7-inch, entitled "You Paid for It b/w Deepwater No Cars," out on Psychic Handshake. With an LP coming out on Spectrum Spools in the next few months, expect to be hearing a lot from Moskos in the near future. He is accompanied by Regression, Nate Young of Wolf Eyes' solo project.
