Beats Antique

Be Our Guest: Beats Antique

Win tickets to see Beats Antique at The Catalyst on Oct. 31

Electronic music, traditional Middle Eastern music, and Afrobeat might seem like worlds that would never normally collide.

As it turns out, Beats Antique formed a shade over a decade ago with the express purpose of blending these seemingly unblendable sounds into something resembling a cohesive vision. And it works splendidly.

The East Bay band takes the hypnotic, tribal-trance-like elements of these genres to find common ground on a spiritual level. There’s even a strong component of dance performance to really transport you to an otherworldly place.

INFO: 9 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 31. Catalyst, 1011 Pacific Ave., Santa Cruz. $30/adv, $33/door. Information:


Go to before 11 a.m. on Friday, Oct. 25 to find out how you could win a pair of tickets to the show.
