Man Forever, Demon Eye, Lacy Jags 

When: Wed., Oct. 4, 9 p.m. 2017
Price: $8

John Colpitts (aka Kid Millions, the drummer for psych rockers Oneida) sure knows how to beat the crap out of a drum kit. His efforts as Man Forever began as a side project, a chance for him to explore the outer edges of minimalism while continuing to pound skins off drums. Most of the time, his vision involved getting lots of snare drums together to build towers of ever-shifting rhythmic patterns. But on the most recent Man Forever album, Play What They Want, Colpitts edges ever closer to actual rock music and discrete songs. He enlisted a crack group of experimental musicians, including harpist Mary Lattimore, the band Yo La Tengo, and Laurie Anderson for a series of sonic explorations that touch on Can and Alice Coltrane with piles and piles of percussion underlying everything in unexpected ways. It's probably the most intricate and rewarding thing Colpitts has done in a while—but it's also anyone's guess what it'll be like live. With Demon Eye and Lacy Jags. —Dan Ruccia
