Weekend Warrior, May 9 - 11

Weekend Warrior, May 9 - 11

When Marcus Denke and Kevin Keenan combine forces forming The Joint Chiefs of Math, the results are truly dynamic. To be more specific, The Joint Chiefs of Math seem to lock-in and sync up, communicating complex musical ideas which are played at a frenetic yet calculated pace. The pairing weaves through a labyrinth of sonic styles, taking unexpected turns and steering clear of convention - in essence, purposely driving off the grid to find their own warp-speed way. The emotionally volatile, noisy alt-rockers Mumblr occupy the other opening position this evening at Johnny Brenda’s, gearing up for the fret-shredding work of Marnie Stern. Johnny Brenda’s 1201 N. Frankford Ave., 9pm., $13, 21+ - Michael Colavita
