Tarek Sabbar.

A Madison resident who divides his musical life between here and Milwaukee, guitarist and electronic musician Kenneth Tarek Sabbar has worked in a variety of eerie sound-worlds, from the searing post-punk of Heat Death to the austere, beat-driven solo music he makes under the name Tarek Sabbar. His "Plastic Bags” single, released in 2017 on the intriguing Milwaukee label Close Up of the Serene, falls somewhere in between, placing sharp, ringing guitar figures over a sparse motorik groove. Sabbar says his set at this show, though, will be more in line with a recent live set for Milwaukee radio station WMSE, which uses drum machines and synths to a more funky and danceable effect, but still has some of the menacing atmosphere of his other work. —Scott Gordon
