Friday: 7-11 p.m.

Sarasota alternative synth-rock band MeteorEYES will perform this Friday at OSCURA, with accompanying performances by Movie Props and Stick the Landing.

Led by Sarasota's mystical vocal powerhouse Shannon Fortner, MeteorEYES brings a musical experience of its own design. The three-piece electro-rock-synth-pop group includes drummer David Warren Curran and guitarist George Bikos.

As the Founder of Harvey Milk Festival, now FabAF, Fortner and her bandmates are known for combining their talents, music, and activism in order to create fellowship and share a message of acceptance of both self and one another within the community.

MeteorEYES s lush synth landscapes and driving post-punk energy draw listeners into a world transformed. Veiled in mystery, the original music invites audiences to question the masks we all wear in society, while boldly daring to create a fellowship of solidarity toward basic human equality.
