AND ANTIDOTES & THE PROPHET NATHAN As video projectors have become more affordable, they’re finding their way into interesting niches, bringing animation and computer-based art out of the studio and off of the Internet. Thanks to the legacy of liquid light shows that helped turn psychedelic rock into a total body experience, projectors also help cross-pollinate the worlds of visual art and music. Celebrating the proliferation of video art in Music City, tonight’s show will feature projections covering Bohéme Collectif’s walls, ceilings and floors, in the company of a conglomeration of deliciously weird pop music. Angsty post-rock trio The Prophet Nathan and dancefloor-friendly synth-rockers Crayons and Antidotes kick it off; next are Baltimore’s Chiffon and Knoxville’s Fine Peduncle (named after connective tissue in the brain, not your mom’s unsavory brother), who have divergent takes on contemporary R&B. FP is crunchy and a little creepy, while Chiffon is a slow-jam mixtape melting in the summer sun. Capping the festivities is Meth Dad, aka do-it-together ringleader and pop mastermind Tyler Walker, who’s known for pulling a party out of a bag of glitter and a boombox. You may scratch your head at first tonight, but it won’t be long before it starts nodding.
