Electronium: The Future Was ThenBAM Howard Gilman Opera House (30 Lafayette Avenue, Brooklyn, New York, NY) Map it $25
A notorious maker of trouble, Questlove invites us into his musical laboratory to witness two nights of sonic celebration. Expanding on last year's Shuffle Culture, Electronium features performers from a range of genres and styles engaging in an ear-opening musical dialogue exploring the history of electronic music. Joining the Grammy winning drummer is avant-R&B outfit Sonnymoon, violinist Emily Wells, beatboxer Rahzel, and more. From Robert Moog to George Clinton, this musical mash-up pays tribute to the trailblazing knob-twisters and noise generators of the analog revolution whose influence is still heard today.
