#TuesdayTease: Toro Y Moi
If you are missing out on ACL this year, don’t be too sad. A lot of the artists are touring through Houston in between weekends or on their way out of Austin next weekend. And Toro Y Moi is one of them. (Grab ticket info here.)
Mixing French and Spanish, Toro Y Moi translates to the Bull and I. The front man’s real name is Chaz. And he was recently featured on the soundtrack for “Grand Theft Auto V.” Pretty cool. Bringing downtempo electronic (think house, deep house, two-step and 90s rolled into one) feel to life with live instruments seems to be all the rage these days. And that’s exactly what he’s up to. If that’s not enough to convince you, take this in. Toro Y Moi was named 2nd on of Fuse’s thirty must-see artists at SXSW for 2013. The year is almost over. Better see him. (Grab ticket info here.)
He’s no stranger to festivals and great live sets. Catch a look at his Pitchfork performancet:
What’s a #TuesdayTease? Every Tuesday, I post a video from a band that will be coming to a stage near you soon. If you’re here, you love live music. So, let’s get pumped together for all the fantastic shows that happen around Houston, from local musicians to touring musicians.
