Friday Part I

Electronic experimentalist and heady hip-hop instrumentalist Jennifer Lee, better known as TOKiMONSTA, makes an appearance at Sister (407 Central NW) on Friday, June 3. An astral entity whose work with Project Blowed and Flying Lotus landed her squarely within the realm of El Lay’s underground hip-hop movement, Lee also happens to be a classically trained pianist. She is well known for deconstructing the work of luminaries like Justin Timberlake and Yacht through remixes that absolutely come apart in your head as the beat drops —sometimes delicately, sometimes with awesomely erratic revisioning, but always with a focus that speaks volumes about her musical prowess and infinitely wonky tendency to digress upon subtle rhythms and beatific bits of melody. TOKiMONSTA represents the diverse, unbound future of a genre previously troubled by misogyny and gangsta aesthetics. $15 is all it will cost the average 21+ listener to engage in the elusive what-comes-next nature of West-Coast grooviness. TOKiMONSTA takes the stage at Sister around 9pm.
