New Nothing Series: Extra Life + Dan Deacon with Nuclear Power Pants 
Saturday, February 13, 8 PM
Studio 1 - Goodman Studio/Theater

A band that reconciles the 13th and 21st centuries without breaking a sweat. Hailed by Time Out New York as "scarily focused and ruthlessly complex," Extra Life is the brainchild of composer/vocalist/ guitar virtuoso Charlie Looker. They play thrashing, gorgeous, heavy music in which zigzagging guitar lines give way to dramatic silences and Looker's eerily pure tenor floats above a drum section from hell. Making good on his thwarted (we're glad he's better) attempt at shaking EMPAC's studios with a wave of exuberant indie noise dance,Dan Deacon returns! Deacon cohorts Nuclear Power Pantsopen.
