HELADO NEGRO - opener tba
This event is all ages
The son of Ecuadorean immigrants, Helado Negro was born in South Florida in 1980. His childhood was suffused with tropical heat, humidity, hurricanes, all refracted with the rich sounds and colors of the various Latin American cultures of southern Florida. Pounding bass beats from passing cars, boom boxes bouncing down the block, and late-night parties called "peñas" provided a foundation for Helado Negro's interest in sound and lifelong quest to discover the unlimited variety of objects used to produce music. Most recently he created a new collaborative group with Julianna Barwick called OMBRE releasing their debut album in 2012 called Believe You Me. Helado Negro has worked with Bear in Heaven mixing their Pitchfork's Best New Music album Beast Rest Forth Mouth. He also produced Prefuse 73's 2010 album Everything She Touched Turned Ampexian.
"The song is wonderfully enticing, making nice use of shaken synths to set a recognizable mood. There’s an echo of John Maus' more accessible work here, but Lange’s frazzled, somewhat delicate voice makes him an ideal fit for midtempo burners like these." --Pitchfork
"In every style Roberto Carlos Lange develops, a sultry, dreamy temperament remains apparent, from the shimmying cadences and simmered arrangements to his just-woken-up voice. Invisible Life is the clearest and most dynamic Helado Negro record to date." --Pitchfork
