Anybody remember the Back to Mine series, where artists like
Underworld and Everything But the Girl would compile their favorite
chill-out tunes, guaranteeing an eclectic late-night soundtrack every
time? I'd like to hear Terri Moeller's and Paul Austin's, who've been
performing as Transmissionary Six since they met while touring with
former bands The Walkabouts and Willard Grant Conspiracy
(respectively). Transmissionary's fourth full-length, to be released a
few days after tonight's show, is Cosmonautical, and like Radar before
it, is focused on creating a particularly sensual atmosphereone of
dancing in a dark kitchen or parking at an empty beachbut unlike
Radar, it also takes its legs off the dashboard from time to time and
sets about dancing. With Zera Marvel. Sunset Tavern, 5433 Ballard Ave.
N.W., 784-4880. 7 p.m. $6. RACHEL SHIMP
Listen to a sample of Transmissionary Six's "Zero Gravity."
