It’s usually a party when Detroit electronic duo adult. takes the stage — so it’s not a bad choice for those looking to have some World Series eve fun.
But the group’s Adam Lee Miller expects it to be just another gig.
“We have no idea; I don’t know anything about sports,” says Miller, 35, who collaborates in adult. with his wife, Nicola Kuperus. “We had a friend selling merch(andise) for us in California, and she was constantly on her cell phone fi nding out the scores and statistics and explaining it to us.
“I’m just learning about the World Series. I’m happy for Detroit; I just don’t know anything about the Detroit Tigers.”
They know plenty about music, though, and adult. has been fully occupied recording a new album, which it plans to release this spring. It’ll be the follow-up to 2005’s “Gimmie Trouble” and a return to being a duo after guitarist Sam Consiglio’s short stint in the band.
Miller says he and Kuperus, who reside in Detroit, are looking forward to previewing the new material for fans — and to seeing what kind of changes come about after they’ve been performed in live.
“Playing them live always seems to impact them,” he says. “Sometimes a song will feel good in the studio and when you get it out on the stage, it’s like, ‘Wow, that’s two times too long.’ And the biggest changes seem to occur in Nicola’s voice.
“We’ve changed the way we do things, too. Before we used to totally write and fi nish (the songs) in the studio and then take the stuff out. But more recently we play it out and then go into the studio with it, so there’s more opportunity for changes.”
adult., Viki and Indian Jewelry perform Friday (October 20th) at the Magic Stick, 4120 Woodward Ave., Detroit. Doors open at 9 p.m. Tickets are $12. Call (313) 833-9700 or visit
