The next stop on Alive's monthly local music showcase: Skully's, where our event doubles as the official afterparty for Columbus Music Co-op's sixth annual Parking Lot Blowout.

This time, we've lined up a slate that evolves from the noisier realms of the garage into a dance party fit for shaking off a full day of rock. Music will be underway by the time the last notes ring out across the street, so shuffle on in any time after 10 p.m. and expect to be entertained.


Titonton Duvante

Though he has long since moved to New York, Titonton Duvante spent some time in Columbus dropping grooves at locales like the BLD. With a discography that reaches back 16 years and a tour history that stretches around the globe, he's become perhaps the best regarded electronic musician in Columbus history. He's also credited as a leading voice in the tweaked-out subgenre known as Broken Beat.

He'll make his latest return to town Saturday to close out our showcase with a thrilling 1 a.m. DJ set.


Cassius Slay

It was only a matter of months after Cassius Slay hit the internet before the team of Cornelius Jackson and Keith Swet gleaned an endorsement from the most powerful name in dance music, Diplo.

The duo's take on Moombahton, a rising dance genre that involves slowing down Dutch house to chilled-out reggaeton tempos, earned Twitter props from the superstar DJ/producer. Then Diplo's label Mad Decent included Cassius Slay's "Based" on a new Moombahton playlist.

Talks with record labels are underway. Say you saw them when by seeing them at 12:15 a.m.


Shin Tower Music

Tristan Seufert's ever-evolving multimedia collective keeps conjuring up some of this city's most stimulating sights and sounds. The group brings plenty of fine recordings into the world, but the best way to experience Shin Tower Music is live, where you never know what sort of audiovisual bliss they have in store. Sometimes, like at Alive's 2010 Bands to Watch show, they stay chill. Sometimes, as at ComFest 2010, they erupt like a synthetic volcano.

The latest incarnation of the group hits the Skully's stage at 11:30 p.m.


Professional Wrestling

Jonathan Orr hangs with this city's experimental minds and dirty rock 'n' rollers, and their influence is palpable in the electro-punk he makes under the guise Professional Wrestling. Orr wrings nasty noise and cataclysmic contortions from old Casio keyboards, sealing each track with vocoder'd robot melodies straight from the Gil Mantera playbook. His debut album, which should be for sale at Saturday's show, is aggressive, infectious and unlike any other noise coming out of Columbus.

Climb the turnbuckle and get ready to slam at 10:45 p.m.


Psychic Wheels

This Burglar offshoot brings hypnotic flair to retro rock 'n' roll, drawing from a rich tradition of smart, sedated rock that includes The Velvet Underground, The Jesus and Mary Chain, and Crystal Stilts. They're one of the freshest bands in the city - no record, shows in the single digits - but they're also one of the most exciting, pairing ace songwriting with a carefully defined aesthetic.

They'll kick things off Saturday at 10 p.m. sharp.
