Foot Village

It’s hard to imagine how Foot Village is even going to fit inside the tiny back room of Cairo Gallery, let alone leave room for an actual audience. The LA-based, Smell-affiliated band is an all drums and vocals quartet, with each of its four members manning a full sized drum kit and singing. Live, they set up facing each other in a diamond formation, with one giant jumble of drums in the middle. The drumming is part martial part tribal, roiling and rolling with punk rock intensity; it’s a drum circle you could slam dance around, given enough room. The singing, though, tends to be of the warbling shrieking and primal screaming variety, and depending on your appetite for that stuff, it might seriously undercut your ability to enjoy all of Foot Village’s aggro rhythmic fun. Opening are Seattle ambient wavers USF, who recently released the Jonathan Lethem-inspired (really) EP The Spray. With Footwork. ERIC GRANDY
