Drum machines and synthesizers aren't the first things that spring to mind when one thinks of Austin music. But that only makes the Octopus Project's Day-Glo mash-up of live instrumentation with assorted digitalia — perfected on the stealthily poppy, gloriously amorphous July EP Golden Beds (Peek-A-Boo) — even more of a pleasant surprise. A Living Soundtrack opens. Tickets $10.
