Adultnapper, who kicked around San Francisco in a couple of indie-rock bands before discovering techno, will be supported by the filtered disco-tech of Seattle's Pezzner on Saturday, Oct. 3; www.kontrolsf.comor www.theendup.com.

Live, he coordinates a more straight-on bang, but one still as fucked-up as it is funked-up.
