Tobacco, Dreamend

When: Thu., Sept. 30, 9 p.m. 2010

Tobacco is the solo guise of Pittsburgh beat-and-synth explorer Tom Fec, otherwise known as the co-founder of Black Moth Super Rainbow. Like Prefuse 73 using bigger chunks of sound, or like Throbbing Gristle soundtracking the basement parties of the future, Tobacco colors oddly trippy, old-school beats with sheets of noise, rainbows of melody and mutations of vocals (his own and, on the new Maniac Meat, Beck's, too). Fec sometimes forgoes strong songs for strictly sonic impressions, meaning his records might not be built to last. But this is a concert: Dance for an hour, and go home with bliss. Chicago's Dreamend opens.—Grayson Currin

Price: $9-11
