We suck. 

We accidentally listed the Elliot Lipp show at Jazzbones as happening tonight rather than Sunday.  The all ages show with Aaron Spiro will take place Sunday at 6 p.m.

We suck.

Here is our little preview:

  • Back in the early ’80s I was turned onto an album called League Unlimited Orchestra that was a remix disc of the Human League’s groundbreaking debut, Dare!  The recording did two things for me: it introduced me to electronica and gave me an appreciation for totally synthetic music.  In the wake of acid house and techno that followed, I explored such artists as 808 State, the Future Sound of London, and Orbital.  Tacoma native Eliot Lipp was toddling around in diapers at the time I was discovering this music, but nevertheless, he’s more knowledgeable about it than I.  The 27-year-old composer was first influence by hip-hop artists such as RZA and Hieroglyphics.  After moving to San Francisco, he found underground artist Dan the Automater and Madlib, and began honing his skills. While his first record, Eastern Developments, showed promise, it would be his self-titled sophomore effort that proved he could hold his own in the electronica arena as he melded elements of ambient, breakbeat and hip-hop. On Lipp’s third release, 2006’s Tacoma Mockingbird (Hefty Records), he went back to basics using familiar beats that he overlaid with vintage ’80s synth lines.  [Jazzbones, with Aaron Spiro, 6 p.m., all ages, 2803 Sixth Ave., Tacoma, 253.396.9169]
