Smart Bets: Umberto

Headway and Orbit DVD are teaming up to bring Umberto (the project of L.A.-based recording artist Matt Hill) to Flood Gallery. Hill rarely performs on the East Coast, making this event even more special. Among the aesthetics informing Umberto's work, a press release notes, "faux horror soundtracks inspired by Fabio Frizzi, John Carpenter, Claudio Simonetti and Goblin have given way to Gorgio Moroder's dance floor and 1980s Harold Faltermeyer scores." 9 p.m. showtime. Profligate from Philadelphia and local artists Kangarot and Cumulus also perform. Tickets are available at Izzy's Coffee Den, Static Age Records and Orbit DVD. $10/$13.
