Club preview: Gui Boratto 

Wednesday, Apr 7 2010

São Paulo–based Gui Boratto maps tech-house's valleys of rhythm and peaks of melody. At his best, the DJ and producer pushes his carefully measured percussion into an insistent crease, avoiding distracting friction or overpowering gloss along the furrow. It's a relatively luminous channel he navigates, a steady stream of midtempo anthems with periodic swells of pop-informed euphoria. The set would seem almost cheesy during certain trance-worthy choruses, were it not for the occasional descent into a grainy eddy of minimal techno.

  • Phish at the Bill Graham Auditorium
    Phish is in the midst of a block of sold out shows at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium (October 27-29). The Monday night concert featured a rare first set opener of “Walfredo” with the band members switching instruments for the song. The evening’s highlights included John Fishman and his iconic vacuum cleaner solo and favorites such as Chalk Dust Torture, Slave to the Traffic Light, Axilla, Rift, 2001 Space Odyssey, and Maze. The show also featured Phish’s debut of a, seemingly impromptu, version of “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” to with roaring approval of the, singing along, crowd. With Game 6 being tonight, partying Phish fans will join Giants fans in Civic Center Plaza where there will be a World Series viewing party on a large screen set up by the City.
