Four Tet at Bardot on March 23
With Winter Music Conference and the madness around Ultra in full swing, it seems that almost all of Miami-Dade County is currently pulsing to a four-four beat. This show at Bardot both fits in with the overall electronic Zeitgeist of the week and subverts it.
Four Tet is the alias of Kieran Hebden, an underground, London-based cult figure who specializes in zagging when everyone else is zigging. Under his given name or his pseudonym, he creates abstract but pretty compositions that wander off in threads from hip-hop, dance music, and even jazz.
Live, he often picks up on the latter's improvisational spirit, and a show can go from introspective and chin-scratching to all-out danceable depending on Hebden's mood and the crowd's vibe.
Four Tet, with Jackmaster and Dopestepa. 9 p.m. Friday, March 23, at Bardot, 3456 N. Miami Ave., Miami. Tickets cost $32.64; age 21 and up. Call 305-576-5570, or visit bardotmiami.com.
