Sat. March 31 | Like an expertly curated DJ set sprung to disco-ball-glittering life, Australia's Cut Copy offers something of a down-under counterpart to England's Hot Chip.

Mon. April 2 | A heady protest record couched in a deadpan lounge/funk leisure suit, Timber Timbre's transportive 2017 album Sincerely, Future Pollution (City Slang) argues that the next best thing to living in another time is sounding like one. Room Thirteen opens at 9 p.m. at Gasa Gasa.
