El Ten Eleven 

9 p.m. Wednesday, April 22. The Firebird, 2706 Olive Street.

The danceable, hypnotic loops created by the Los Angeles electro-rock duo El Ten Eleven are a very 21st-century, post-everything artistic expression that borrows very little from the past. But the pair's real strength is its live show, where its mastery of looping techniques and full exploitation of effects-pedal manipulations set it apart from most of its peers. Double-neck guitar wizard Kristian Dunn and drummer Tim Fogarty construct layers of sonic bliss in a live setting on a nightly basis; the audience is placed in the interesting position of watching the piece-by-piece construction of each pulsing, ethereal number. It's hard to fake that sense of immediacy — and it translates into an energetic live experience.
