Tim Fite with Little Oso and Graphic Melee
doors at 7:30pm
$12 day of show
To celebrate his new wall drawing Paradise Will Break Your Heart in the SPACE venue, electro-pop/hip-hop/indie-rock polymath Tim Fite performs a multimedia set of songs, stories, sketches and commercial breaks.
Called a “cultural gadfly” by the New York Times and “ferally original” by the New Yorker, Tim Fite spends the bulk of his time cranking out genre-bending pieces of art and music. In addition to recent gallery exhibitions at Gallery Tom Blaess and The Beam Center of Brooklyn, Fite has toured internationally with wildly diverse artists such as Bonaparte, Outkast, Phiharmonie Zuidnederland, Man Man, My Brightest Diamond, Les Claypool, Ben Kweller, Azure Ray, and others. He has released three full-length albums on ANTI- Records, as well as plethora of genre-bending self-releases. His multimedia live performances are joyfully alive and infectious, while staying culturally relevant and hyper-aware.
Portland-based shimmering dream pop artists Little Oso commemorate summertime nostalgia with sun-kissed, catchy bops laden in east coast lyricism. With melodic vocals drowned in reverb, floating over spacey lead guitar and driving rhythms, Little Oso offers the comfort of dreaming under a blanket of sound. The band has released multiple EPs over the last five years, with the latest, Happy Songs scheduled for release later this summer.
Heavy beats, dusty vinyl, and dirty synthesizers are the specialties of emcee, producer, DJ, and community organizer Graphic Melee. The Maine-based hip-hop triple threat is the host of the Stereo Dreams monthly producer showcase, curator of todayinhiphophistory.com, and a house DJ you’ll find supporting diverse artists all across New England.
