Electroshockbox 

Wednesday, June 8, at the Brick.

A purveyor of "freaky-ass music," Electroshockbox mastermind Tron-D is a one-man band for the postmodern age. Tracks such as the aptly titled "Hip Goth Rock Muthafuckin Hop Pop" offer an ironic mélange of laptop breakbeats, industrial noise snippets, foreign-language dialogue tapes and the otherworldly sounds emanating from what must be the world's first dobro theramin. Shockbox concerts, which Tron-D describes as "fat-ass nasty," assume a David Lynch quality -- tunes such as "Titties on My Back" bump and grind like roadhouse strippers, and the pasty-white D's old-school flava conjures images of Tucker Carlson fronting 2 Live Crew. Whether it's pure novelty or the future of music is anyone's guess, but you're guaranteed to have a great time finding out.
