Manic drummer with tranced-out instrumental breakbeat jazz trio the New Deal, playing the Opera House Friday and Saturday (May 11 and 12)
NEPTUNES Anything "Breakbeat creativity raises them above the sea of hiphop regurgitation that's been going on these days. Oh, and Eric Morillo has been busting my ass as well...."
SIGUR ROS Agaetus Byrjun "Saw them when we played Coachella in Palm Springs a week ago. Got home, bought the record, awesome"
QUEEN Sheer Heart Attack "Intravenous dose of epic vocals and guitars. After a winter of house music, a perfect summer rock 'n' roll record."
