Budo @ The Back Bar

After years of touring the world as one-half of the esteemed Rhymesayers hip-hop duo Grieves & Budo, and gaining recognition as a producer for hip-hop luminaries like Macklemore, Sol, Slug (Atmosphere), Gym Class Heroes and more, BUDO will debut his newest work as a solo artist to the public on Thursday, May 30 at the Crocodile Back Bar in Belltown.

Budo's new work takes his dynamic energy as a live performer-- deftly blending trumpet, synth melodies, and guitar-- into new musical terrain, a departure from his established work as a hip-hop producer. As evidenced by his first single, "Circles," this new sonic universe is evocative and lush, both haunting and viscerally honest. By layering voice and live instrumentation, Budo's work alludes to the elliptical, electro-acoustic music of James Blake, The Notwist, and Alt-J, with his own distinctive style of captivating showmanship.

Opening for Budo will be Orbe Orbe, a new celestial pop project fronted by Cristina Orbe. The show is all ages and tickets are $7 in advance through Ticketfly. Budo is presented by the Crocodile and Reigncity.
