i:scintilla 

9 p.m. Monday, August 7. Off Broadway (3509 Lemp Avenue).

For those who wept when Kelli Dayton left Sneaker Pimps, open those black-lined eyes wide: i:scintilla is here to fill the female-fronted electro-industrial void. The Champaign, Illinois, band's music fights classification synth and nail as they crunch hardcore while weaving music box-caliber melodies. Orchestral arches lead into experimental avant-metal, as Brittany Bindrim's sparrow soprano sears meteorically through the alt-darkness. Having worked with Wade Alin (the electrogenius behind Christ Analogue and Atomica), i:scintilla's breadth and beats will be enough to sate everyone from synthpoppers to shoegazers.
