Amoeba has curated the next Red Bull Sound Select show in L.A., featuring electro-poppers Milo Greene.

The show, which is 21+, takes place Wednesday, April 29 at The Echo. RSVP for a $3 entry. (RSVP does not guarantee entry; plan to arrive early.) It’s $12 without an RSVP at the door.

Milo Greene features the work of four very talented people. On their latest album, Control, Marlana Sheetz takes the lead for the cool Hollywood dance-pop of “White Lies,” sitting nicely alongside likeminded artists such as HAIM and Jessie Ware, while the male-fronted songs from her three bandmates are no less beguiling, as “On the Fence” draws influence from the likes of A-ha for a smart and instantly pleasurable new wave-jam.

They’re joined at this show by L.A.-based Avid Dancer, the indie pop-rock project helmed by Jacob Summers. Summers grew up an outsider to popular music in a devoutly Christian household. After serving in the Marines for four years, Summers has since come into his own as a musician, touring with the likes of Hamilton Leithauser, Cold War Kids and Warpaint. Hear the soulful “Stop Playing With My Heart” below:

Amoeba Music is proud to sponsor “Without Sympathy: The Visceral Journey of Al Jourgensen” at Lethal Amounts Gallery in Downtown L.A., documenting the development of industrial music pioneer Al Jourgensen of Ministry.

Co-presented by Cleopatra Records and Lethal Amounts, the exhibit features the archives of Brian Shanley, photographer and art director of legendary Chicago industrial label Wax Trax! Both Shanley and Jourgensen will be on hand for the opening night of the exhibit April 17 at 8 p.m.

The show documents the early years of Ministry and its side projects as Jourgensen and like-minded musicians stretched the definition of electronic and new-wave music from 1980 to 1990, including Revolting Cocks, 1000 Homo DJs, PTP, Pailhead, Special Affect and more. Expect a sordid array of images from the early club days to major label success, including original album art/layout, concept designs, cut-and-paste flyers, magazine clippings, promo glossies and a selection of unearthed photographs from the era.

Lethal Amounts is located at 1226 W 7th Street in Los Angeles.
