Yellow Ostrich w/ Pattern is Movement

1034 N. 4th St., Milwaukee, WI, 53203
With his ever-evolving project Yellow Ostrich, Brooklyn-by-way-of-Wisconsin songwriter Alex Schaaf splits the difference between immediate, catchy indie-rock and gripping, head-twisting art rock. From the odd, looping pop of his 2011 full length The Mistress to 2012’s loud, horn-laden Strange Land, the common thread is Schaaf’s deceptively direct songwriting, which disguises high concepts in hooky choruses. The groups latest album, Cosmos, is its most linear yet, a song cycle inspired by the work of deep-thinkjing cosmologist Carl Sagan. Opening the bill is an even more overtly experimental band, Philadelphia’s Pattern is Movement, a duo that’s dabbled in math rock and twisted R&B on its recent releases.
