ODESZA plays a late show at the Knitting Factory this Saturday
Saturday, 5/10:

Fleetmac Wood
Black Bear Bar
9:00 p.m., $8
Before you make any assumptions about anything named Fleetmac Wood, let's get one thing straight: no covers. This London-based DJ collective and party series traffics exclusively in originals and remixes, re-edits, and re-imaginations of the White Winged Californians' greatest hits and dusty back-catalog gems. After debuting last month in Los Angeles, FMW brings its dreamy dancefloor vibes to Brooklyn this month. Costumes and geeking out ("If you're not sure you like Fleetwood Mac, don't come. No really, don't," reads the press release) encouraged. -- By Harley Oliver Brown

Robert Henke + The Haxan Cloak
Brooklyn Masonic Temple
8:00 p.m., $15
For his new LumiƩre live show, the co-developer of Ableton Live and all-around sonic innovator Robert Henke deploys lasers hot enough to light a cigarette to project hyperactive geometric patterns in conjunction with the kind of threatening polyrhythmic electronic music with which he made his name as Monolake. Not excited yet? This unique presentation by Red Bull Music Academy at the Brooklyn Masonic Temple will also feature the U.S. live debut of dark experimentalist the Haxan Cloak. -- By Aaron Gonsher

ODESZA
Knitting Factory Brooklyn
11:30 p.m., $12/$14
ODESZA is part of a group of Seattle bands leading a small, pretty-sounding revolution against the EDM bangers that have dominated the dance music scene for the past few years. The duo's glitchy electro-pop goes down like candy for breakfast, the type of music you can move to all night long and still come down to in the morning. ODESZA's irresistibly groove-inducing reputation has been selling out shows across the country, so be sure to catch them when they bring their gorgeous sound and light show to a pair of concerts in NYC. -- By Harley Oliver Brown
