Something wicked this way comes to Pontiac's Crofoot Ballroom.

Based in London, where he works as an artist, DJ, and owner of the influential Hyperdub record label, Kode9 makes his first Detroit-area appearance with support by nospectacle.

Dub specialist Kode9 (his friends back home in Glasgow call him Steve Goodman) studied rave culture, cybernetics, postmodernism and afrofuturism at the University of Warwick in England, where he got his Ph.D in philosophy. In 2004, he founded Hyperdub records. The first release was a dance 12 by Burial, who went on to release two stunning full-lengths in 2006 and 2007.

nospectacle is a Detroit laptop/turntables/video trio featuring Chris McNamara, Walter Wasacz and Jennifer A. Paull. The group recently performed at the 8 Days in June Festival at Detroit's Max Fisher Center, on the Main Stage at Movement '08 and during the Eero Saarinen Shaping the Future exhibition at Cranbrook Art Museum.

The show is July 3. Doors are at 8 p.m. Tickets are $10. For more info and tickets go here.
