Multitalented, multi-genre, multi-instrumentalist artist Charles Andrew Bothwell, more prominently known by his stage name Astronautalis, performs at Sister (407 Central NW) on Monday, Oct. 31. Known for an aesthetic sensibility that music critic Stewart Mason compared to that of former wünderkind, now rapidly aging hipster-Scientologist Beck, Astronautalis is a purveyor of a sort of musical hybridism that incorporates elements of hip-hop, punk rock and indie-vision (you know, like Nivrvana, dudes) into a form of entertainment that somehow parallels, revitalizes and appropriates from the likes of jazzer Allen Toussaint and Three 6 Mafia while somehow remaining fresh, phat and non-derivative in execution. His latest recording, Cut The Body Loose, features emphatically enigmatic yet ear-worm-infested tuneage like “Running Away From God” and “Kurt Cobain,” works that have a dark exterior that lovingly covers over an artist's earnest exploration of hope and the hellish consequences of life with a fascinating and clever use of rhythm, rhyme and rascally musical instrument wrangling. It'll cost 10 bucks to expose oneself to such a prescient example of where music in the mid-21st century is heading, but will be totally worth it. After this 21+, 8pm show, you will have a handle on the newest methods employed by postmodernism while also understanding (if you followed my advice this week, dear reader) opera, Americana and jammed out world music, too.

And if all that ends up being a revelation, well, hell’s bells, I've done my job for the week!
