As The Blow (performing tonight at the Larimer Lounge with He's My Brother, She's My Sister and Shaky Molars), Khaela Maricich has been making albums since the late '90s, and has been doing so through influential Pacific Northwestern label, K Records, for most of that time. The Blow's minimalist approach generally involves just Maricich's soft voice and a single synth line or drum machine beat, which, in a live setting, can make the audience feel like voyeurs sneaking a peek at her solitary bedroom performances.
While YACHT's Jona Bechtolt was a part of the musical project for a handful of years, the majority of it has been solo work for Maricich, who is equal parts performance artist and musician. This show is 21 and up, and tickets are $12 to 15. Doors open at 8 p.m., and bands start at 8:30 p.m.
