Tonight: Tobacco at the Larimer Lounge
Beat-man Tomas Fec (aka Tobacco, who performs tonight with Beans and Shapers at the Larimer Lounge) is not only a sound manipulator, but has the warped visuals to match. Tobacco's musical creations are best experienced live for this reason, as he projects pop- and consumer-culture collages while creating his live synthesized and analog-blended songs.
Collaborating with the likes of Aesop Rock and Beck, Tobacco stretches his sonic weirdness even further by gravitating toward an artful hip-hop that fits well among his Anticon label counterparts. Though darker and murkier, Tobacco's signature warbled sounds may also be recognizable from his participation in the band-collective Black Moth Super Rainbow. This show is 21 and up, and tickets are $13-$15. Doors open at 8 p.m., and the first band starts at 8:30 p.m.
