The best concerts have lots of pyrotechnics, which is why classical pianists always wear asbestos pants. Insulate yourself from boredom with today’s GrouponLive deal: for $7, you get one ticket to see Gold Panda with Natasha Kmeto and DJ Nordic Soul at The Crocodile on Wednesday, October 26, at 8 p.m. (a $14.50 value, including tax and fees).
Since 1991, The Crocodile's stage has served as the honorary home of such rockers as Nirvana, Pearl Jam, and Cheap Trick, making it a virtual incubator of the Seattle sound. U.K. artist Gold Panda transforms the hallowed neighborhood stage into an unworldly space, blending mixed vocals, found sounds, and foot-clapping beats into songs so strange and compelling that NPR dubbed his album Lucky Shiner among the best new electronic music in 2010. Joining the lineup, Natasha Kmeto fills the hall with futuristic soul, a novel fusion of experimental electronic music, hip-hop, intelligent dance music, and clones of The Commodores. Local DJ Nordic Soul warms up the stage and the dance floor with mash-ups of organic and synthetic tones and live instrumentals inspired from hip-hop and house music. After maniacal dance moves and hours stuck in conga-line traffic, patrons can refuel with a personal-size wood-fired pizza at the Crocodile Back Bar (not included in this Groupon).
