MMMMaven in association with Music Ecology‘s Tuesdays at Wonder Bar features Jimmy Edgar. September 18th at 10 pm, 21+, $10 at the door.
Sex. That raw kind. The kind of encounter described in hushed tones to friends over the first round of drinks, then too loud and in too great detail to the strangers perched at the bar on the fifth. It’s not that Jimmy Edgar is trying to write a soundtrack to this kind of sex. Rather, Edgar is attempting to replicate the sounds, the emotions, the rhythms of lust–without actually recording what goes down in his own bedroom. Despite track titles like, “This One’s for the Children,” Edgar’s latest album, Majenta, is no less infused with the raw sexuality for which he is notorious. On the heels of his first release with Hotflush Recordings, the international musician, visual artist, and photographer began his 2012 world tour. Edgar brings the salacious and provocative beats of Majenta to his fans in a mix of DJ sets and live LED performances. The North American stretch of Edgar’s tour kicks off right here in Boston, September 18th, at Wonder Bar.
Three veterans of the Boston music scene are also featured in the night’s line-up:
Ali Berger returns to the stage after a brief hiatus. Berger, who’s been perfecting the flow of his funky sets, introduces us to some new tracks, including those on his latest EP with Militant Science. In the next year, Berger fans have more gigs to look forward to as well as his in-progress debut album.
Recent guest on In the MMMMix and the first guest of MMMMaven’s Friday Live Set, Doctor Jeep continues making the rounds on Boston stages. If you’re paying attention, you might just pick up some audible souvenirs from the Doc’s recent trip over to the UK.
A set from John Barera completes the program. Barera, who released his “Mile End” EP with Ortloff Records earlier this year, recently joined our friends over at Basstown as a new resident for Make It New.
