Transmissionary Six

Friday, March 7

Anybody remember the Back to Mine series, where artists like

Underworld and Everything But the Girl would compile their favorite

chill-out tunes, guaranteeing an eclectic late-night soundtrack every

time? I'd like to hear Terri Moeller's and Paul Austin's, who've been

performing as Transmissionary Six since they met while touring with

former bands The Walkabouts and Willard Grant Conspiracy

(respectively). Transmissionary's fourth full-length, to be released a

few days after tonight's show, is Cosmonautical, and like Radar before

it, is focused on creating a particularly sensual atmosphere—one of

dancing in a dark kitchen or parking at an empty beach—but unlike

Radar, it also takes its legs off the dashboard from time to time and

sets about dancing. With Zera Marvel. Sunset Tavern, 5433 Ballard Ave.

N.W., 784-4880. 7 p.m. $6. RACHEL SHIMP

Listen to a sample of Transmissionary Six's "Zero Gravity."
