Rampant Egos

Arnold Bodmer (left), Dwight Loop, and Justin Parker

Whether they are reciting spoken-word poetry, ranting and raving, or simply playing music, The Rampant Egos guarantee an eclectic evening’s performance at Paradiso (903 Early St.) as part of the venue’s 2019 No Compromise! series of experimental and avant-garde music. The three-person band, composed of Arnold Bodmer, Justin Parker, and Dwight Loop, perform in a style they call “structured improvisation,” combining elements of jazz, ambient sound, neoclassical, techno-tribal, electronic music, and more. Expect to hear some otherworldly theremin music in the mix. The Rampant Egos have recorded more than 20 albums but rarely perform live. They play at 8 p.m. on Friday, April 26. Doors open at 7 p.m. The cover charge is on a sliding scale, $10 to $15 at the door. Call 505-577-5248 or visit paradisosantafe.com. — Michael Abatemarco
