Future Punx, Deep State, Midnight Boi

For Brooklyn four-piece Future Punx, “post-wave” is more than just a genre tag—it’s a state of mind. The band’s playful, almost primal approach does fuse the pulsating electronics of ’80s new wave with funky, dub-inflected post-punk guitars, but the group is admittedly determined to update these elements in the digital age of near-limitless opportunity. Released on Dull Tools—the label bassist and vocalist Chris Pickering runs with Parquet Courts’ Andrew Savage—This Is Post-Wave finds the band doing just that, channeling Devo’s taut execution and angularity as it takes a pit stop in the present and moves towards the future sound. Melodic punks Deep State and electronic noisenik Midnight Boi share Wednesday night’s World Famous bill.
