19. Research ft. DJ Boring
DJ Boring (aka Berlin-based Englishman Tristan Hallis) sure has set himself up for critical snark, but he’s overcome his self-deprecating alias by filling big rooms and appearing on important radio stations and podcasts with a scintillating slant on lo-fi house music as both disc jockey and producer. To get a grip on Boring’s deck ethos, check out his 2018 Rinse FM mix on SoundCloud, which gets funky, deep, and psychedelic without losing the plot. His own productions skew toward the acidic and gently disorienting. This is Boring’s Seattle debut. DAVE SEGAL
(Downtown, $10)

They can also test out a few levels from When Rivers Were Trails and try an indigenous take on The Oregon Trail set for release sometime this year. JASMYNE KEIMIG

FILM

83. DJ Nicfit & Substation Present: A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night
From Sean Nelson’s review of the hit Iranian horror film: “Just when you thought there was no gas left in the tank of revisionist vampire cinema, along comes A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night, a tale billed as ‘the first Iranian vampire western.’ Though it’s unlikely to become a crowded field, this black-and-white Farsi-language gem is rich in allusive metaphor (blood-oil-sex-religion) and deep, dark texture. First-time writer/director Ana Lily Amirpour comes by her genre bona fides honestly, via a palette of cinematic and literary influences—Jim Jarmusch most strikingly, but also Leos Carax, Jim Thompson, and Raymond Chandler—not usually seen in horror films of any nationality.” DJ NicFit will remix a new soundtrack on two turntables.
