Dirtwire, the San Francisco Bay electro-acoustic duo of David Satori and Evan Fraser, perform in support of their latest release, “RipTide,” at 9:30 p.m. Sunday, June 7, at the Wild Buffalo, 208 W Holly St.

They met at the California Institute of the Arts while studying world music composition, and are both members of other successful music projects – Satori as part of the sensational electronic dynamo group Beats Antique, and Fraser at the helm of world-groove bands Hamsa Lila and Stellamara.

As Dirtwire they combine acoustic, electric and electronic elements with traditional instrumentation, world-beat percussion, and digital soundscapes.

Satori plays violin, banjo, acoustic guitar, slide guitar, slide banjo, piano, drums, and electronic production. Fraser plays harmonica, lap-steel slide guitar, jaw harps, piano, melodica, bones, beatbox, and percussion.

Cover is $12 advance, $15 at the door. Tickets at wildbuffalo.net.
