Imbued with modern alchemy, Beats Antique possesses a quatrain of dance-floor prophecy that could have been foretold by Nostradamus. The Oakland trio’s fluid mix of ancient and contemporary entrancements isn’t beholden to any one era or expression — it is the past, present and future. Creature Carnival, the name of Beats Antique’s current tour, is a multilayered fusion of cultural inversions. Using a myriad of tantalizing eye and ear candies, the group brings its judicial astrology to the National on Wednesday, Sept. 30. Moon Hooch from Brooklyn, New York, and Pinky D’ Ambrosia help to enable the collective clairvoyance before Beats Antique takes the stage. Doors open at 7 p.m. $22.50-$25. thenationalva.com.
