Bonobo combines his studio wizardry into the live show pretty well, adapting his signature sound into something more attuned to the live stage than the headphones-worthy downtempo grooves you’ll hear on his records. Tickets and more info are available here. Caught the live band show last November at Republic and will jump at the chance to see what the DJ is up to (and because that brought out one of the more interesting crowds I’ve seen in NOLA). Black Sands was one of the best records of 2010 and I haven’t had the chance to see a show at The Hookah (just a block over from HoB) so it’s good to see him already coming back to NOLA.
Wesley grew up in coastal Georgia and is a former resident of The Music City and the Big Easy where he helped get Live Music Blog: NOLA off-the-ground, managing it in New Orleans through Jazz Fest 2012. Hodges now lives amongst THE CALIFORNIANS as a newcomer to West LA. His favorite artists include My Morning Jacket, Sigur Rós, Widespread Panic, The Allman Brothers Band, Dr. Dog, Tame Impala, Anders Osborne, Radiohead and Bobby & The Midnites.
Daft Punk is actually playing at his house tonight and you're invited.
