Button Mashers

Though not unlike contemporaries in the international (Earthen) realm of electronic music duos — France's Daft Punk and Air, England's Autechre and F--- Buttons, Canada's Junior Boys and Crystal Castles, New York's Ratatat — New Orleans Moog fetishists The Buttons take a more intergalactic approach (well, not as much as say, Daft Punk, who may as well be aliens). The Buttons step out from their underground-UFO lair at Spellcaster Lodge and perform at One Eyed Jacks Saturday, Sept. 5, briging with them their smoke-machine-induced exhaust fumes and pulsating Close Encounters of the Third Kind lights (and respective musical notes) rearranged for a coked-out intergalactic disco. The Buttons surround themselves with clunky analog synthesizers and drum machines, pumping out Giorgio Moroder-inspired vocoder-pop with motorik dance beats. (Backporch Revolution has the band's eight-song LP up for free download.)

The Buttons will also debut a video for the single "Roller Rock," directed by Mike Kennedy.

The East Bank duo shares the stage with the West Bank's favorite sonsBallzack, who dropped his latest LP Yeah Indeed this summer, and Odoms, Ballzack’s oft partner in rhyme.

Doors are 9 p.m. Tickets $10.
