Continuing the streak of eye-popping bookings at downtown’s Elixir is this very surprising one-night only DJ set from tastemaker and musician Matthew Dear. Where do we even start? The Detroit artist recently released his sixth album, Bunny
, praised by The Guardian
as full of “eclectic post-punk via heavy electronics.” This is only the latest chapter in a 20-year career of chasing after his own ever-shifting muse and music. Dear also co-founded the flawless Ghostly International record label. And he’s no mere “celebrity DJ.” He’s been at it for years; he knows his techno and he knows how to make a room undulate. Don’t expect the self-dubbed King Chameleon to perform any music – though he does occasionally throw a deep cut of his own on the decks – but do expect him to get bodies moving. No phones, fair warning.
