Friday, October 18th, BONOBO returns with his band behind his critically acclaimed album, The North Borders! After completely selling out the House of Blues with support from Shigeto and an afterparty at Primary for a rare DJ set, BONOBO brings his band to the historic Riveria Theatre!Presale tickets sold out in less than 30 minutes through Bonobo's official website. Tickets are on sale now at out this video from Bonobo's sold out show at the House of Blues in April here.Since his performance in October, Bonobo has traveled the globe with his full band, hitting intimate venues and internationally renown festivals. He recently released the video for The North Borders' opening track, "First Fires," and also performed live on KCRW's Morning Becomes Eclectic. Simon Green, AKA Bonobo, is an artist very much at the peak of his significant powers. His 2010 album Black Sands was the high watermark of his career to date; a masterful record, marrying Green's inimitable melodic genius to cutting edge electronics, bass and drums. The North Borders is another long stride forward - both a natural evolution and a continuation of the electronic palette of Bonobo's previous album, Black Sands. Thematic, resonant, addictive and perfectly formed, it's a thrillingly coherent statement piece. With vocal features from no less than Erykah Badu, as well as Grey Reverend (Cinematic Orchestra) and Cornelia (Portico Quartet) it's another finely balanced body of work, leaving room for the beautiful, rich productions themselves to breathe and shine.
