Cloud Nothings is a one-man studio band: 19-year-old Dylan Baldi, the songwriter whose frantic, fuzz-toned but ever-tuneful home recordings, from a suburban basement, werediscovered online. He’s a throwback to the melodic early-1980s punk-pop of bands like the Replacements, with the immediacy of being an actual teenager — a nerdy, nasal-voiced underdog falling in love or lashing out. “You’re not that important now and that will always stay the same!” he sneers in two-syllable bursts (NY Times).

Fri. 2/17 -9:30 PM
Danny Brown

[Danny Brown] projects his neuroses onto pill-popping college girls, traces the roots of his vices to a fucked-up family, and speaks on the damn near post-apocalyptic climate of his Detroit hometown until all the pain comes rushing right back on album closer "30", a victory rap lap with a drunken horn beat, tugged along by a swaggering celebration of success and a nagging death wish. Danny Brown is loads of fun to listen to because he raps like a maniac, hilariously and tragically, about any and everything, but XXX stays on your iPod thanks to its precarious balance between being wildly unhinged and conceptually sound (Pitchfork).

Jeffrey Jerusalem

Introducing Jeffrey Jerusalem, the West Coast’s next hot-shit producer, performer, and remixer. The high-energy moniker of Portland, Oregon’s Jeff Brodsky, Jeffrey Jerusalem delivers ecstatic rhythms, and primitive bliss as part of his multimedia lifestyle. As a producer, Jerusalem’s music combines playful, lo-fi bedroom disco—characteristic of Portland’s dance scene—with the top shelf techno-craftsmanship of his peers at DFA(Lazercave).
