Kid Cudi – Especial Tour

When: Wed., Feb. 3, 8 p.m. 2016

Last summer as he announced the release of his latest album, Speedin’ Bullet 2 Heaven, rapper Kid Cudi tweeted, "There are no synths or electronic sounds on the album. It consists of all guitar and bass played by myself." While the former Clevelander took a similar approach on his rap-rock album WZRD, he embraces indie rock on this effort, channeling Pixies and the Nirvana on tunes such as "Confused!" and "Man in the Night." A better rapper than singer, Cudi struggles to make the songs here palatable. But he's a hometown hero who's become a popular culture icon. He should draw a large crowd to House of Blues tonight.
