going to attempt to keep the hysterics in check. Forgive me if I fly
off the cuff a little though. A couple weeks ago, when I heard we netted Steven Ellison for a feature,
I immediately got hyper-charged and confessed my worship of him in
front of a room full of my coworkers. So it's not like any of them are
going to take my word for it if I try to dub Friday's Royale gig "Show
of the Year" or anything crazy like that.
Last week we caught up with Steven Ellison, d/b/a FLYING LOTUS, for a fairly rare interview that looked inside the mind of one of the more intriguing experimental artists of 2011's ever-eclectic music scene. Friday night, FlyLo hits Royale on Tremont Street, and we have a pair of tickets to give away thanks to the folks at GHouse and Bowery Boston.
visiting a new city for the first time, you're bound to encounter at least a few trials and
tribulations along the way -- parking, navigation, finding a decent place to eat, etc.
Somewhat daunting, but I've always looked at it as more of an adventure
than anything. But if that new city already happens to be as trialed
and tribulated as Detroit? Well, there's a good chance that city may
chew you up and spit you out, snatching up your car, cell phone, and
hotel reservations in the process.
