6/19: Enon at the Beachland

Back before the Rapture discovered cowbell, and electro-clash was a viable genre title, Enon were already meshing electro-pop with noisy art-house rock. As dance-punk slowly goes the way of rap-metal, Enon’s Devo-like experimental quirks keep them relevant. Yeah, they’ve got disco beats, murky bass and dissonant fretwork, but with a penchant for sampling, discordant interludes and oddball melodies, they’ve also got some signature panache. More than just churning out hip-shakers, Enon handle everything from Gang of Four post-punk (“Natural Disasters”) to foggy DJ Shadow funk (“Believo!”) and Björk-like pop (“Daughter in the House of Fools”). It’s this diversity that’s kept fans intrigued and dancing for more than 10 years. D. Rider and Arte Povera open at 9 p.m. at Beachland Tavern (15711 Waterloo Rd. 216.383.1124) Tickets: $8 advance, $10 day of show. — Matt Whelihan
