Omar Souleyman+Deakin

A TSA goon's worst nightmare in in his proudly ubiquitous aviator shades, red-checkered keffiyeh headdress, and trim yet fulsome 'stache, Omar Souleyman plays a hard, fast, loud, and thrillingly distorted version of Syria's dabke dance music, punctuated with plaintive ataba dirges. He stalks the stage accompanied by keyboardist Rizan Sa'id, who provides the crazy-loud beats and simulated traditional instruments. Animal Collective's Deakin opens with his one-man drone show.
