Must-See Music Pick! From the Music Editors: View Music Picks 
Are you a former jam-fan who's found life beyond Phish? Do you think music made with only guitars and drums is soo last century? If so, this showcase of top electronic artists is for you. Headliners the Disco Biscuits have been creating their electro-jam fusions for years, and recently have begun to add elements of hip-hop to their serious grooves. RJD2 and Prefuse 73 know a thing or two about that genre; RJ's 2002 album, Deadringer, is considered a modern classic for beatheads (though he's actually turned to singing and instrument-playing in his recent work), and Prefuse's glitchy soundscapes have been rapped over by MCs like local standout Diverse. Expect a head-nodding night.
