Soft Metals

Tonight, Noise for the Needy hosts a ridiculously stacked dance party at Belltown’s Underground Events Center (which you might know as the home of Seattle’s Punk Rock Flea Market). Headlining are Portland duo Soft Metals, whose synth-heavy repertoire ranges from the sort of icy Italo lately popularized by Glass Candy and Chromatics to an ace cover of Throbbing Gristle’s “Hot on the Heels of Love,” all pulsing, pumping, and updated from industrial coil to heat-seeking techno. Filling out the bill is an impressive selection of local acts, from Yoko Ono worshippers the Ononons to party punks Spurm to chill electronic outfits Sports and USF to theatrical wailers the Tempers, plus a handful of DJs. It should be a wild party for a worthy cause. With Fly Moon Royalty, DJ Gin & Tonic, DJ Up Above, Floyd Beastie. ERIC GRANDY
