Uncle Skeleton Record Release feat. How I Became The Bomb & Nahnee Bori 

When: Fri., May 4, 9 p.m. 2012
Price: $7-$15
If you want to know exactly what Uncle Skeleton — the dance-pop symphony masterminded by local music brainiac Ross Wariner — is all about, you don’t need to look much further than track five of the band’s latest record, All Too Human. “Those Days” is a chameleon of a tune, shapeshifting between four-on-the-floor disco beats, hook-laden soul pop, brightly orchestrated jazz and knob-twiddly electronica. Uncle Skeleton exists as an oxymoron — they manage to be organic and electronic at the same time, which is no easy feat. Wariner and the orchestra of talented musicians that make up Uncle Skeleton manage to make threading that needle look effortless. All Too Human sounds like someone flipping through radio stations in a future where pop music has melted into a crazy mess of genres. But as progressive as it is, it never strays out of accessibility and into prog-rock wankery. Admission is $7, or $15 with a copy of the double LP.
