A year ago, the folks at Electronic Exhibition announced a monthly series showcasing touring and San Anto artists working hard on their computers and Moogs that weren’t getting proper exposure. A year in, the group is celebrating a sucessful birthday, with music from Baltimore’s Odwalla88, Brooklyn’s Chicklette and SA’s Calico Club. Like Iggy Pop’s “Nightclubbing” or anything Grace Jones ever touched, Calico Club’s Permanent Night is a record about the bar as not only a lifestyle but a creative opportunity: the chance to perform in posture, dress and dance even if you’re not onstage.A poetry slam set to vocal samples and orchestra hits, Odwalla88 is a disorienting combo of noise rap and performance art. On “New Tiger,” Chicklette coils up with a gloomy and chanting trap number, laughing with their finger on the trigger. With DJ sets by PopGuy of Executive Realness. $3, 9pm, Hi-Tones, 621 East Dewey, (210) 573-6220 —Matt Stieb
