Sure one’s body and one’s head are connected, but what if they refused to communicate or cooperate with one another? What if they went their separate ways? If that were to happen, it might sound something like the discordant revery of Body/Head. The experimental noise project comprised of the patron saint of cool, Kim Gordon and long-time friend and collaborator Bill Nance. Formed in 2012, Body/Head released their debut LP, appropriately titled Coming Apart, the following year. The result? Combative guitars, jarring static, and Gordon’s signature wailing and vocal badassery.

Performances begin at 7 p.m. on Friday, March 8 at MOCAD; 4454 Woodward Ave., Detroit; 313-832-6622; mocadetroit.org; Tickets are $22.
