The artist known as Matthew Dear has got some serious (but not too serious) identity issues. I mean, it's not as if his psychic split is the acid-activated, lock-myself-away-for-30-years-and-die Syd Barrett variety. It's more that, musically, Dear is way too complex to be merely one man. And so, like a lot of other arty weirdoes from the electro/techno/house subset, he chooses to manage the multiple, raging facets of his creative personality by assigning cute little aliases -- such as False, Jabberjaw, and Audion -- to one new self and the next and the next. 

Now, lucky for those among us who like psychologically strange tunes, Dear will conjure the last in the above list of alternate selves -- his deep techno persona Audion -- when he hits Electric Pickle July 24. Expect infectiously danceable excursions into the dark depths of a shattered subconscious. Also, expect LA-slash-Miami DJ duo Jay-You and Pet Food doing their own version of the schizoid shuffle. But take heed: There are only 200 passes to this bash. (Meaning, it's an imminent sellout.) So don't stall, get yours and yours and yours right now. 

Friday, July 24. Electric Pickle, 2826 N. Miami Ave., Miami. Show starts at 10 p.m., and tickets are $20. 305-456-5613; Electric Pickle at Facebook.com.

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Miami with no paywalls.
