THAT1GUY @ THE WORMHOLE

A classically trained double bass player with a progressive jazz career, Mike Silverman then built the Magic Pipe and became That1Guy. With his 7’ tall contraption of pipes, orchestral strings, and percussive/Theremin-like electronics, he adds vocals effects and beatbox to create unique songs and soundscapes. It’s incredibly original and constantly unexpected.

THU FEB 2 | 8 PM

TAUK + KANIKA MOORE @ DISTRICT LIVE

It’s pronounced “talk,” short for Montauk, the far end of their Long Island origins. Normally there wouldn’t be much of it from these all-instrumental jam band vets. In this iteration, Kanika Moore lends sultry, soulful vocals. The combination smokes.

THE PURPLE MADNESS @ VICTORY NORTH

At 20, Warner Bros. gave Prince creative control of his first three albums. On his debut “For You,” he wrote, produced, arranged, composed, and “played all 27 instruments.” It follows that such a talent would eventually sell 100 million records. Purple Madness takes you on a tour of one of pop music’s all-time greats. 

THU FEB 2 | 8 PM

SUSTO @ VICTORY NORTH

Charleston’s indie rock combo blends rock, acoustic and alt-country with crystal clear vocals detailing personal topics of faith, identity and illicit substances. SUSTO’s melodies are sturdy enough to support deeply emotional topics and friendly enough to let you in and hear what the band has to say.
