The Hot Summer Gays series (a collaboration between local organizations Queer Pressure and Dyke Dive) returns here with another music lineup aimed at elevating LGBTQ performers in Madison, this time at Robinia Courtyard, where Queer Pressure also hosts a monthly art series. Like July's installment at The Wisco, this lineup is part dance party, part left-field listening session, and some artists offer a bit of both at once. Starting things off is Madison's Olyvia Jaxyn, whose recent EP Lyv melds tenderly off-kilter pop with intriguingly mournful vocals and a bright, spacious approach to production. Other highlights on the bill include rapper Kiloakaskitlz and experimental-leaning rock duo Glassmen. The night closes out with a solid one-two of singer/producer Midas Bison and Madison dance-party staple DJ Boyfrrriend. —Scott Gordon
