Emperor X
    Wednesday March 14, 2012 11:00pm - 11:40pm @ The Hideout (617 Congress Ave)

    Emperor X is a pop/noise/folk music project headed by American songwriter and sound artist C. R. Matheny. A former high school science teacher, he dropped out of a graduate physics program in 2004 to focus on music.

Reviewers compared Matheny's tracks to The Microphones, Black Dice, and early Modest Mouse.
