INVISIBLE Plays Free Show Tonight, Local 506

In case you missed recent shows by Greensboro band INVISIBLE last week, you have a great opportunity to catch them at a free show tonight (Monday, August 11th) at Local 506 in Chapel Hill! INVISIBLE plays a unique blend of experimental music, including a one-of-a-kind instrument: a "Selectric Piano", that "links a IBM Selectric typewriter to a keyboard--each character corresponding to a note." As the Selectric plays, it also projects the text on a screen. Each typewriter key is attached to a solenoid that depresses a key on the keyboard. Guaranteed you have never seen anything like it!

Their instruments also include drums, bass, guitar, and of course, various other electronic delicacies, so their sound ranges from electronic infused rock to other-worldly.

For those looking for more conventional music, you may still be able to get tickets to Smashing Pumpkins, playing in Charlotte at Ovens Auditorium on Friday, August 15th, and at Raleigh Memorial Auditorium on Sunday, August 17th. As of today there are still tickets available for the Raleigh show. (Photo: Steve Burnett)
