Black Moth Super Rainbow at the Fine Line
Spring in Minneapolis has finally descended, and what better way to celebrate it than with the intoxicating sounds of Black Moth Super Rainbow? Odd and inscrutable, it’s best not to dig too much into the identities of the band—masked and private as they are, you’re better off giving into the grooves of their psychedelic, low-fi sets, holding down the Fine Line tonight with the Hood Internet warming up the stage.
Beats created ready for the dance floor (or maybe just a post-Pride celebration?) are easy to celebrate to, but just as worthy of a close listen, as tracks maintain a careful balance between sinister musical inclinations and pop treacle. Black Moth Super Rainbow could be one man behind a computer screen, but it’s actually a full band lineup hitting the drums, playing guitar, and pulling the synths, so this concert is more intriguing than your average electro show. It makes sense that the band released its fifth album last fall and is still trading on its chaotic identity and insidious vocoder. 7 p.m. $15. —EK
