.Be Our Guest: Beats Antique

Electronic music, traditional Middle Eastern music, and Afrobeat might seem like worlds that would never normally collide.

As it turns out, Beats Antique formed a shade over a decade ago with the express purpose of blending these seemingly unblendable sounds into something resembling a cohesive vision. And it works splendidly.

The East Bay band takes the hypnotic, tribal-trance-like elements of these genres to find common ground on a spiritual level. There’s even a strong component of dance performance to really transport you to an otherworldly place.

INFO: 9 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 31. Catalyst, 1011 Pacific Ave., Santa Cruz. $30/adv, $33/door. Information: catalystclub.com.


Go to santacruz.com/giveaways before 11 a.m. on Friday, Oct. 25 to find out how you could win a pair of tickets to the show.
