There have been two notable changes for Experimental Dental School: First off, drummer Shoko Horikawa has left the band, having been replaced by Ben Taylor, and secondly their name has been condensed to XDS (Kids hate vowels these days, right MGMT?). The former is more important than the latter since Horikawa was an integral component of the duo’s jerking art-rock sound, but given the inventive nature of singer/guitarist Jesse Hall—if anyone can MacGyver a song together from a few broken effects pedals, a battered floor tom, and a stick of gum, it’s him. With Hall at the helm, it’s safe to assume XDS’ best days are still yet to come. Catch them tonight along with Olympia lo-fi coed outfit Broken Water, and the spacious sounds of local shoegazers Happy Prescriptions. EAC
