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.

  • Arcade Fire at Shoreline
    Arcade Fire opened their US tour at Shoreline Amphitheater to a full house who was there in support of their album "Reflector," which was released last fall. Dan Deacon opened the show to a happily surprised early audience and got the crowd actively dancing and warmed up. DEVO was originally on the bill to support Arcade Fire but a kayak accident last week had sidelined lead singer Mark Mothersbaugh and the duration of the west coast leg of the tour. Win Butler did a homage to DEVO by performing Uncontrollable Urge.

    Comic book enthusiasts, Cosplayers, TV and movie fans, and celebrities descended to sunny San Diego for the annual gathering at Comic-Con International.

Or hearing a new movie with Sam Raimie based on a video game or accidentally rubbing shoulders with Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) in cosplay, being a cosplayer, San Diego Comic-Con is the place to be.
