No Longer Showing.

Stephen Malkmus performs solo in support of Groove Denied, a surprising new project that embraces the very digital tools and procedures he'd have once gone out of his way to avoid. Groove Denied was made using Ableton Live, a software sequencer and "digital audio workstation" that is the preferred tool of discerning techno producers and deejays worldwide. Instead of a human-powered rhythm section of electric bass drums, Malkmus's arsenal further includes drum machines, along with a host of plug-in FX and "soft synths" (digital simulations of vintage electronic hardware that inhabit your computer rather than take over your entire living room). For the first time on record, what you hear here is just Stephen and the Machine(s).

Thursday, May 2, 7:30pm and 10pm.  $35 General / $30 Members.
