Seasonal Special Happenings

Bring Tha Noise

When: Thu., Aug. 27 2015

Lamont Thomas has been busy. Under the name of Obnox, he has put out three albums and a bunch of EPs and singles in the past three years alone. The creative energy coming from this guy is indomitable, and that's reflected on his 2014 effort Louder Space. Grungy guitars and decisive percussion punctuate layers of rhythm-fueled grittiness in songs such as "Molecule," "Who Needs You" and "Best Time of My Life." Horns make their appearance in "Red I," while "Mecca Son Shine" has an almost industrial feel, giving the whole album an eclectic sound. This multifarious collection of songs isn't a scattered mess, though; where the sound varies in mood and texture, Thomas manages to keep it all tied together nicely. Catch the group tonight at 6 when it plays the Beat Uptown, the weekly outdoor concert series hosted by the Museum of Contemporary Art. Admission is free. Archie and the Bunkers open. (Niesel)
