Big Black Delta, Adventure Galley 

When: Wed., Sept. 25, 9 p.m. 2013
Price: $10
A side project from Mellowdrone's vocalist/bassist Jonathan Bates, Big Black Delta pursues the popular synth-indie sound everyone's jiving on these days, but with a little more flair and charisma. Though Bates is on a solo mission, he still manages to collaborate with other LA electro-suppliers like M83 and Alessandro Cortini of Nine Inch Nails. Through a haunting electronic veil, Bates' voice day-drinks with David Byrne and tangos with Ian Curtis by night. His songs range from melancholy with Molly Ringwald (who's singing at the Newmark this week) to partying with HBO's Girls. It seems as though Big Black Delta is music made by and for the synth-minded Generation Y: danceable, dark, and containing more sedimentary layers than what meets the ear. ROSE FINN
