Carla Bozulich describes her latest record, Evangelista, as “a sound that you can open your chest with, pull out what’s inside and make it change shapes.” Frankly, I think it sounds like the former Ethyl Meatplow and Geraldine Fibbers frontwoman is asking her audience to rip their hearts out of their chests, stick microphones into their still-beating ventricles, and use the damn things as drum machines. It would certainly provide an appropriately minimalist backing beat to the sparse atmospherics Bozulich and her new Constellation Records cohorts serve up on the record’s nine tracks. Yet, as Bozulich explains, “Even inside this void there is sound. You will hear it…the sound of your own pulsing blood.” Pray the only human heart on display is the one Bozulich always wears on her sleeve when Carla Bozulich’s Evangelista performs with Brandon Butler, Dead Science, and Anni Rossi at 8:30 p.m. at the Warehouse Next Door, 1017 7th St. NW. $8. (202) 783-3933. (Matthew Borlik)
