Six-piece, California dance-punk outfit !!! (Chk Chk Chk) spins a rare DJ set following their performance accross town. Lead singer Nic Offer and multi-instrumentalist Mario Andreoni bring their irreverent, off-kilter attitude to the Flash Bar alongside opening sets from The Dance Party Chronicles' Martin Miguel and Remote Ctrl (DJ). This is a free event.
!!! (CHK CHK CHK):
!!! (generally pronounced "chk chk chk") is a dance-punk band that formed in Sacramento, California, in 1996. The band's name was inspired by the subtitles of the movie The Gods Must Be Crazy, in which the clicking sounds of the Bushmens' Khoisan language were represented as "!". However, as the bandmembers themselves say, !!! is pronounced by repeating thrice any monosyllabic sound. Chk Chk Chk is the most common pronunciation, but they could just as easily be called Pow Pow Pow, Bam Bam Bam, Uh Uh Uh, etc.
