British electronica band Zero 7 will be hitting town tonight. They are basically a duo, Henry Binns and Sam Hardaker, but also feature guest musicians and vocalists like Mozez, Sia Furler and Tina Dico.
After engineering music for the likes of The Pet Shop Boys, Robert Plant and Young Disciples and remixing songs for Radiohead, Lenny Kravitz and Sneaker Pimps the two men struck out on their own during the 1990s. The release of their first album came in 2001. Over the course of their careers they have had nominations for Grammy Awards and the Mercury Music Prize.
Most of the music on their four albums has been classified as downtemp electronica, but they have delved into trip hop and acid jazz.
For their live shows Binns and Hardaker have three regular vocalists, some musicians and guest performers who join them onstage. It is not unusual for them to have 20 or so people on stage with them at a time.
This general admission show is all ages.
