DJ & Dance, Seasonal Special Happenings

Skizzy Mars/C Ro Del Fresco

When: Sun., March 1, 8:30 p.m. 2015

Young New York-based rapper Skizzy Mars cites indie rock acts such as Death Cab for Cutie and Animal Collective as influences. Not that you can really hear those influences on his latest effort The Red Balloon Project The album opens with “Like This,” a narrative-heavy track that finds Mars adopting a sluggish delivery style as he intones, “like this/like this/like this” over a slow-motion groove. The loopy “The City” has a good beat to it and recalls old school jazz-inspired acts such as Digable Planets. Local rapper C-Ro Del Fresco opens the show. He’s just released Modern Warfare, a new 5-track mixtape that shows off his lyrical skill and rapid-fire delivery on songs such as the infectious “Summertime in the City” and the moody ballad “Jealous Man.” (Niesel)
