Beau Wanzer  .

Beau Wanzer.

Beau Wanzer's music grooves within the realm of industrial techno as much as it squirms through ominous esoterica, on releases from labels including L.I.E.S. and Russian Torrents Versions. But the Chicago-based producer's oddball references and selections can shift into a crazed aesthetic, especially in his DJ mixes. Pulling from the fringes of dance music, noting cult-horror movie subculture, and occasionally indulging in comedic or grotesque non-dance tracks, Wanzer creates a disorienting atmosphere for freaks on any level. Madison's Joel Shanahan (who is a Tone Madison contributor) will also performs at this Halloween-themed night as Golden Donna, behind an ever-changing dance set, molded together in leftfield through thoughtful sound sculpting. Shanahan organically shape-shifts sound in and out of tight techno and house patterns, creating something both accessible and adventurous for both the listener and the dancer. DJ Lauden of TV Dinner will be spinning here as well with eccentric and comprehensive selections that keep you on your feet. —Emili Earhart
