Australian-born performer Xavier Rudd (who performs tonight at the Ogden Theatre with HoneyHoney) takes the multi-instrumentalist label far beyond its usual connotation. In addition to creating music with his voice and an acoustic guitar, he employs didgeridoos, djembes, cymbals, stomp boxes and slide guitars. This is perhaps why Rudd's music is best experienced live and what has made him a Bonnaroo staple.
Releasing more than a dozen records in the last decade -- both live and studio -- much of Rudd's musical work is an exploration of his socially and spiritually-conscious interests in environmentalism, animal rights and his advocacy for the indigenous people of Australia. This show is sixteen and up, and tickets are $28-30. Doors open at 8 p.m., and the performance begins at 9 p.m.
