Adam (formerly Adeem) has always been caught in the flood. The onslaught of ideas, the rush of sounds, the chaos of creating. From project to project, rapper/singer Adam Arnone has always sought new ways make music. Now, he’s traded in samplers, records, and turntables for instruments. His sound is pure passion. Humble and aggressive, the music is strong and purposeful. Singing and rapping take turns pushing the point across—calm to beautiful to heavy to raw. His voice reaches through the static of the room as he screams his prayers to the ghost of Muddy Waters. Channeling the blues one moment, twisting words into new shapes at crazy speeds the next. The Flood—a four-piece band that includes guitars, drums, and bass, instruments that existed before the electric days—lends depth and texture to Adam’s expression.
Show at 10 pm
