Local showcase

If you’ve ever been to a festival like South By Southwest, you’re familiar with the assorted satellite events (both official and unofficial). In line with that concept, Emerald Lounge is hosting a local showcase during Moogfest, with a full roster of bands Friday and Saturday nights. The showcase is free to Moogfest pass holders and $10 per day for the general public. Moogfest day-pass holders get in free on the day of their ticket. Buy Friday advance tickets at avl.mx/m7 and Saturday advance tickets at avl.mx/m8.

Friday: Panther God (Beat music) 9:30-10:45 p.m.; Aligning Minds (breakbeat, dubstep, IDM, down-tempo) 12:30-2 a.m.

Saturday: Novakord (pictured, synthesized vocals and beats) 9:30-10:15 p.m.; Sonmi (electronic instrumental) 10:30-11:15 p.m.; RBTS WIN (electro-soul) 11:30 p.m.-12:30 a.m.; Paper Tiger (trip- hop, down-tempo) 12:45-1:45 a.m. Doors at 8:30 p.m. nightly. Info at emeraldlounge.com.
