ARTS Pick: Johnny Fantastic

It was a musical twist of fate when keyboardist Ben Schurr struck a deer with his van on a recent visit to Washington, D.C., causing him to shack up with some local musicians for a few days. Schurr filled the time by collaborating with composer/singer John Di Lascio, drummer Adam Orlando, and bassist Rick Irby, an experience that birthed the noise pop experiment Johnny Fantastic. The band is quickly gaining notice with a raucous sound that has been described as Freddy Mercury meets Muse, but seeing is believing.

Saturday 11/23. $8-10, 8:30pm. Main Street Annex, 219 W. Main St., Downtown Mall. 817-2400.
