Canadian jazz trio Badbadnotgood return to play at MilkBoy tonight. Their innovative approach to jazz incorporates elements of hip-hop, EDM and punk. Over the years, the band has released covers of various artists including Kanye West, James Blake and My Bloody Valentine. The band released their third album, aptly titled III in May. They also collaborated with Ghostface Killah and Danny Brown on the track “Six Degrees.” Listen to their cover of James Blake’s “Limit to Your Love” below, read their interview with The Key’s Shaun Brady here and get more information about the show at the XPN Concert Calender.
Pioneer of “noir-hop”, Zilla Rocca will be playing at The Fire tonight. Earlier this year, Rocca released a trippy video for “Fake Surfers” from his album Neo Noir.
