Smart Bets: Sonmi

"Sonmi consistently explores the delicate balance between natural humanism and the harder side of modern technology in their compositions," the band says in its bio. Now, six years into its adventure to the boundaries of electronic music (and beyond), Sonmi (Michael McBride, David Mathes, Robert Garmhausen and Nigel Gilmer) have not only produced stellar recorded music but played an impressive roster of live shows (AHA AVL, Moogfest, Camp Bisco and more). They'll take the stage at Emerald Lounge on Wednesday, April 24. England in 1819 (go to for a full interview), and Peripheral (Sonmi's McBride) open. 9 p.m., $8/$10.
