10 p.m. Saturday
Belle Isle Restaurant & Brewing Company, 50 Penn Place
In the mood for a tribal-esque dance party? Mannachine hopes you are.
Oklahoma City’s Jonny Martin, who records ambient/down-tempo electronic music as Mannachine, will release the five-track “Shiva, the Destroyer” EP Feb. 26 and play a release show of the material at Belle Isle Brewery that evening. Norman electronic jam band Montu will support.
Although Mannachine is a solo project, Martin will sport a full, percussion-heavy band for the show. Two songs from the five-track EP are already available online: “Silver Tongues” and a cover of Local Natives’ “Sun Hands.” The art for the free, digital-only release has not been set yet, but will be contributed by local artist Chris Cao.
The Love Language is here!
And I don’t just mean physical touch, words of affirmation, etc. (I mean, that’s here, too, if you want to discuss it, but …) The sunny pop band’s stop at Opolis tonight will be its third metro jaunt in the past year, as Stuart McLamb and company recently supported Telekinesis and Local Natives. If you haven’t caught them yet, you must not want to; but if you’ve yet to witness, hightail it out to Opolis.
Norman pop/rock band Ape Angel will open the night.
