Electric Six, Yip Deceiver 

When: Tue., March 11, 9 p.m. 2014
Price: $12
Davey Pierce and Nicolas Dobbratz's neo-soul R&B baby Yip Deceiver has transcended whatever moonlighting status it may have originally bore. Pierce and Dobbratz met as members of the ever-morphing art-house project Of Montreal, and there are elements of Kevin Barnes' more ambitious nouveau-funk underpinnings throughout Yip Deceiver's debut LP, Medallius. The band's contrasts of dark and light are perhaps most immediately prevalent in the video for the single "Lovers," wherein a trio of psychotic doctors conduct a sci-fi rampage, eating human organs while traipsing through a haunted hospital of elderly patients as Pierce groovily laments the shackles of love. Eerily good stuff. RYAN J. PRADO
