Astronautalis, Sims, Mike Mictlan, Metasota and Zero

After packing First Ave together last summer, Sims and Astronautalis are back for another easy-peasy pairing of their rapid-paced, spitfiery, electro-rocky, topical brand of indie-rap. The local scene-pushers will perform as one for much of the show picking from their respective albums, with a few guests sure to drop by. Sims has a strong batch of new songs to debut live from his hard-bashing new mini-album, “Field Notes,” due Sept. 2. His Doomtree mate Mike Mictlan opens with Metasota and Zero.
