Not since 2001: A Space Odyssey have we been handed such an out-of-this-world impression of sci-fi in pop culture. The music of Let's Drive to Alaska is a majestic journey through electronic beats, jazz, and post-rock that ultimately stimulates the mind and soothes the soul. The group, composed of duo Christopher Garcia and Patrick Haag, feed off of each other's musical energies to deliver a sonic postcard from outer space, with eargasms galore. Tonight is their third night playing their residency at Continental Room, which means a chance to see LDTA more than once. Appearing with Time and Energy, Plastic Parade and Technocrat.
