Q and Not U 

Saturday, September 20, at the Bottleneck.

Q and Not U hails from Washington, D.C., and records for Dischord, but this three-piece is anything but another unquestionably organic outfit in the Minor Threat/Fugazi vein. Those groups' common link, indie icon Ian MacKaye, recorded Q's 1998 debut, No Kill No Beep Beep, which merged guitar clatter with spastic beats. The squiggly sound showed potential, but the group really kicked off its otherworldly dance party in 2002, throwing synth weirdness, techno-tribal percussion and unorthodox chord structures into the blender on Different Damage. Fans of limb-shaking contemporaries !!! and Minus the Bear should find this set worthy of a full-body freakout.
