Friday: Multiple Tap Japan

March 25

Even by the standards of Baltimore shows, which tend to mix and match disparate sounds and styles across one lineup, this show in which legendary Japanese noise crew Hijokaidan are on the same bill as Baltimore's preminent party rapper TT The Artist is a big, exciting WTF of an event. It's put together by Multiple Tap Japan, a project intended to "connect [the] chaotic extreme Japanese music scene" with the rest of the world. And so, the bill's fleshed out with a mix of local-ish acts including Birth Defects, Eu1ogy, and Japanese acts such as Avandoned, Doravideo, and former Baltimore noisemaker Jeff Carey who now resides in Japan. But seriously: Hijokaidan. 8 p.m., The Crown, 1910 N. Charles St., (410) 625-4848,, $10. (Brandon Soderberg)
