Eight Gigs: Drab Majesty
Fri., Dec. 9, 8 p.m., Starlite Lounge, $10
Andrew Clinco is the low-key drummer of post-rock band Marriages and dark-wave group Black Mare. He is also the otherworldly character Deb Demure, leader of Drab Majesty. Clinco would prefer you not think of Demure as male or female, or even human. Not a difficult task as Demure looks like a cross between Marcel Marceau, Aladdin Sane-era Bowie and a psychedelic alien life form. Drab Majesty plays some of the most interesting, vibrant shoegaze-dream-pop music around. The straight-forward, catchy vibes contrast in the surrealist way possible with his bizarro character.
