The trio known as Alto! has quietly become one of the most reliable combos in the city. The band, led by guitarist and former Sir Richard Bishop sideman Derek Monypeny, has done it by not relying solely on the rumble of their dual drummers, but by embracing the use of field recordings, electronics, and well-placed moments of silence to give their rhythm-heavy moments impact. They're joined tonight by Muzzy, a duo of a similar, though slightly more manic, flavor. Erstwhile solo artist Matt Palenske bashes his table of keyboards and assorted gadgetry up against the thrashed-up drumming of Dan McCoy, kicking out Hella/Boredoms-styled sparks in their collective wake.
