While the Bottle's "free Monday" series is generally pretty solid, tonight's show is especially noteworthy. Headlining the night is multi-instrumentalist Andrew Broder, better known as Fog, who is celebrating the release of his new LP on Lex Recordings, 10th Avenue Freakout. Broder, who has also released albums for Ninja Tune, specializes in instrumental hip-hop, but according to the blurb on the Empty Bottle calendar, his sound has also "evolved into an abstracted perversion of a variety of genre elements, a freewheeling grab of all things interesting." If his last full-length, Ether Teeth, is any indication, this should be a great show and you'll be hearing much more about this young Minnesotan in the near future.
But wait...that's not all! For the low-low price of $0, the Bottle is also throwing in a performance by fellow Minneapolis-based electronic artist, Cepia. Huntley Miller, the man behind Cepia (and the laptop) "fuses all the most affecting elements of pop, rock, and jazz composition –- polyrhythms, countermelodies, calculated structures, and melodic hooks into a cohesive electronic whole," according to his label, Ghostly International.
Overall, this is a great show that I would recommend anyday...but the fact that it's free makes it a no-brainer. Go check it out, enjoy a couple of dollar beers and you'll have yourself a great night of music and booze for less than 5 bucks.
The Empty Bottle is located at 1035 N. Western, show starts at 9:30p...as always, must be 21+
