Salty Artist Management is presenting a special “Saturday Night Soirée” on February 23 at the Noise Pop-Up Shop, featuring live performances from rising Bay Area synth-pop bands Religious Girls and Pale Blue Dot, as well as DJ sets from YR Skull and the two lads behind the nascent management team, Chris & Chad Salty (née Chris Crowley and Chad Heimann).

Opening the show will be the brand new East Bay electronic space act Pale Blue Dot who recently shared the stage with El Ten Eleven and White Arrows. The group is comprised of members of The Aimless Never Miss and B. Hamilton, and also includes Adam Myatt of James & Evander. Myatt told The Bay Bridged in January, “We’re three somewhat-like-minded musicians/friends from Oakland, who met playing shows in various bands together, and like to think of this current project as Carl Sagan-inspired disco.” The trio has a few EPs in the works. Listen to Pale Blue Dot’s first single “Voyage” below.

Headlining the night will be Oakland-based experimental noise-pop trio Religious Girls. Armed with drums, synths, and vocals, Christopher Danko, Nicholas Cowman, and Luis Gutiérrez will shred the night away with an immersive set of pop epics carried by the sweaty primal force the band is known for. Listen to “OG” from Midnight Realms below.

Rounding out the bill will be a DJ Set from Push The Feeling’s resident DJ YR Skull, the solo moniker of drummer, producer, and half of Silver Hands, Drew Marcogliese. Check out “Monolux” below.

Salty Artist Management will be hosting Pabst Blue Ribbon specials to sip on throughout the soirée. Tickets will be $5 in advance and $6 at the door. Buy tickets here. RSVP on Facebook.
