This is a past event.


When: Fri., June 3, 8 p.m. 2011
Price: $3-$5
Rock that dispenses with both song structure and comfortable sonics, the music of Yvette lays Noah Kardos-Fein's blurred guitars over the harsh drumming of Rick Daniel. As with a lot of open-ended, intentionally brutalist contemporary rock, the Brooklyn duo's compositions communicate mood without being specific. On last year's self-titled debut 7”, the band shifts time signatures — "Vibrations" eases from 6/8 into 4/4 almost imperceptibly — and employs words of some kind or another over drum patterns that clatter without swinging. The compositions possess their own mad forward motion, with vocalizing that puts you in mind of half-forgotten, overheard fragments of some long-ago British Invasion hit. Despite Yvette's seething dynamics, the overall effect is friendly — as if The Dave Clark Five discover Glenn Branca and have a field day with distortion. If that sounds like fun, dig in.
