As the epic New York act TV On The Radio wraps up the finishing touches on their latest release, singer Tunde Adebimpe decided to take has side project out for a little stroll across the country. Well, to be fair, Tunde has relocated to Los Angeles in the past few weeks and what better to say “hello” to the West Coast than to take some new friends on a little tour up the Pacific. Higgins Waterproof Black Magic comes across on a similar sonic plane as TVOTR, yet is more stripped down, featuring a few less members but simultaneously developing thick sound.

Songs like “Mad Lifeline” take on a West African influence while “The Blast, The Bloom” leans closer to something more akin to psychedelic rock. Higgin’s Waterproof features a unique conglomeration of musicians; Alex Holden (Big Numbers), Ryan Sawyer (Lone Wolf and Cub) and Josh Werner (Lee “Scratch” Perry, CocoRosie). As Tunde hints that TVOTR will be releasing their latest effort, “sooner than later”, so this may be your only time to catch this project. Wednesday’s bill will also include Tara Jane O’Neill and local upstarts, Black Cobra Vipers.
