Indie-pop producer Toro Y Moi, aka Chaz Bundick, has said his recent move to Berkeley inspired his forthcoming album, Anything in Return. Hear for yourself at his weekend-long listening party and art show at Public Works, running three consecutive nights starting tonight, Friday November 16.
On display all weekend will be thirteen original drawings by Bundick, created to correspond with a specific song off the new album, which will be playing on nearby headphones. If Bundick's DJ set, Sunday from 5-11 p.m., is anything like his recent performance at Treasure Island Music Festival, expect lots of disco and funk. The album's out January 22; in the meantime, here's a sneak peak:
On another note: Longtime SF/Oakland folktronica band Birds & Batteries will play its potentially last show ever tonight, Friday, November 16 at 1772 Market St, formerly Rebel ($9.30 p.m., $5). Guitarist Christopher Walsh is leaving the band, and frontman Mike Sempert says this will be its final show with the current lineup for the near future.
