Astronautalis Plots Two South Florida Gigs

Experimental hip-hop artist Astronautalis finally has a band, but it will sound nothing like the Roots. After seven years of relentless touring in the U.S. and abroad, armed only with a mic and a laptop, the man known to his mother as Andrew Charles Bothwell has upgraded to full-fledged live act. While Astro has enlisted seasoned musicians from Polyphonic Spree, Radical Face, and Midlake in the studio since his debut, the financial limitations of DIY touring have kept him small until now.

The full lineup, which originally formed for a Clash tribute at a Halloween show in Portland, Maine, is comprised of a drummer, guitarist, keys/button pusher, and of course Astro on vocals. Mr. Bothwell's folksy storytelling and avant-garde songwriting were already intense and engaging as a one-man show, so this should be bonkers.

Astronautalis is not alone anymore.
