Jon Hopkins: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Nov 27 2013

London producer and erstwhile Brian Eno weed-carrier Jon Hopkins hit his stride earlier this year with the warmly percolating Immunity LP, which channels Four Tet at the best possible intersection of blissed-out and grounded. But he can also be counted on for proto-dubstep bangers (see 2009's Insides) as much as for tasteful scenery-painting (see his collaborations with Scottish folk singer King Creosote). Fellow British beatsmith Chris Clark has been plying a slightly narrower trade since the turn of the century or so, making exacting and finely textured IDM out of live drum samples and denatured household noises; nonetheless, his is some of the gentler techno-noise to come from the Warp Records camp. His latest release, the remix retrospective Feast/Beast, testifies to the range and inventiveness of his impulse to tinker. Norfolk skygazer Nathan Fake opens.

    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.
