Prefuse 73 show preview (Seattle Weekly)

The notion of Scott Herren – a.k.a. Prefuse 73 – bringing along a live band for a performance is probably only surprising to those folks who haven’t yet seen Prefuse live, and expect all their favorite glitch/IDM musicians to show up to a club clutching only a laptop and an M-Audio box. Herren has long been a proponent of fusing live instrumentation and IDM structures, dating all the way back to his days DJing at an Atlanta club known mainly for acid jazz and a then-incubating neo-soul scene. Herren’s use of a super-tight rhythm section in concert builds on that background, accentuating the strength and individuality of the tracks he crafts.
