Cabo Boing

The inimitable Brian Esser returns to an Orlando stage this week as part of a Southern swing of dates with Dot Com Bubble — an Asheville solo artist traveling very much the same fractured electronic byways that Esser’s Cabo Boing traverses — and purveyors of superlative sonic cut-ups Food Corps from New York.

In theory three bands would be enough for a show, but the lineup is rounded out with a cornucopia of margin-walking locals, always the rule rather than the exception when Esser is in town.

So you’ve got one-person Siouxsie and the Banshees KT Kink, stellar electro-punk theatrics from Channel 83, DJ Jas000n playing all the hits and a top-billed set from Malverde, which includes half of Orlando freak icons Skeleton Warrior and lost Gainesville noise weirdo Chito Haze. It’s fried and frazzled electro-pop you can’t deny.

Make sure you’re well-napped before this one. It’ll be a long, exhilarating night.

7 p.m., Tuesday,Nov. 29, Stardust Video & Coffee, 1842 Winter Park Road,, $5-$10.
