White Cloud, Atole and Starfucker deserved a better slot than a Tuesday evening, and dished out a unique blend of feedback-heavy electro pop that felt better suited for a Friday.  Local group White Cloud opened the night with a mellow – at least in comparison to Starfucker – set featuring rhythmic change-ups and occasional dissonance, while Atole delivered lots of dance-worthy synth rock punctuated with abstract vocals.

Live touches like beat-boxing, scratching and ubiquitous Alan Watts samples did good things for Starfucker’s performance, which also saw the the Portland quartet branching out into more intentional feedback than before.  While their show was made up exclusively of released material, some creative guitar timing and a mischievous look lent the performance an enjoyable touch of suspense.
