Silencio performs a tribute to David Lynch

The band steps into the black lodge at One Eyed Jacks July 2

Now that everyone is Twin Peaking again — thanks to Showtime's blessed resurrection of the most bizarrely entrancing and hilariously subversive series ever to haunt primetime network television — the cosmic connections between David Lynch's so-odd-it's-normal body of work and this tribute performance of Angelo Badalamenti's note-for-note soundtracks are ripe for syndication. The show time — 9 p.m. Sunday — should be familiar to fans. Named after the dreamt-up club in the film Mulholland Drive (which turned into a real one in Paris), the band — Silencio, a dreamt-up New York City act that turned into a real one in 2012, existing only to interpret and spinoff Lynch and Badalamenti's auditory spells — will turn One Eyed Jacks into ... One-Eyed Jacks, the conspicuously blood-red, across-the-border bordello from Twin Peaks (zero set dressing required). The set list will feature a heavy dose of the molasses-drowned, inverted-sugar synth creepers "Twin Peaks Theme" and "Laura Palmer's Theme" — flats have never sounded sharper — and perhaps also the sublimely Lynchian extremes Blue Velvet (rated a hard R for extreme sex and violence) and The Straight Story (an easy G for interstate road trip by tractor). (The score for 1984 atomic bomb Dune belongs largely to Toto, so cross your fingers there.) At the very least, Diane, let there be damn fine coffee and slices of cherry pie all around. Bionica opens. Tickets $10 in advance, $12 day of show.
