Prefuse 73 and Spaceship Aloha @ Morgan’s Pier.
Spaceship Aloha (right) opened with his chill sounds and rhythmic beats. Just back from a tour in Japan, Christopher Powell, the drummer for Man Man, compelled the crowd to sway and rock. A good deal of his beats were hand-crafted on the spot using an electronic drum pad.
Our second and final act was Prefuse 73 (aka. Guillermo Scott Herren, top image). He was still jet-lagged from a show in Moscow. Had I not spoken with him before the show, I never would have known.
He rolled into his set with a heavy hand, inducing the crowd to dance while juggling their beer. Most of his show felt like a journey through space and time. Nearing the end of his set, he began to break out some of the vocals he is known for from previous albums, adding the ethereal to the ride.
