Sounds of the City: That 1 Guy



Lest you think I’m suggesting that musical innovation is behind us, get a load of this reality-warping one-man band from San Francisco. Except “band” doesn’t really cover Mike Silverman’s talent; better to think of him as a one-man Blue Man Group, staging highly theatrical concerts (complete with magic acts!) and generating unearthly funk/electronica on his “Magic Pipe,” an instrument he invented and built himself. Recordings don’t do him justice; surfing www.that1guy.com may help, but the best way to experience That 1 Guy is live and in the flesh.

That 1 Guy
8 p.m. on Thursday, March 17, at the Tralf
