Minneapolis producer and multi-instrumentalist Christopher Farstad makes electronic music that's at once immersive and airy under the name Galaxy Express 555. On his latest album, Natural Mind, Farstad balances fragmented structures with a sense of peace and cheer, opening up spaces where synth and flute melodies can gradually come together and gentle textures can patiently be explored. Sharing the bill at this Tone Madison-presented show is New Jersey native and current UW-Madison student Bhairav Chandrashekar. Under the name Bhairav, he's emerged recently as a nuanced standout among hip-hop producers working in town, especially on the recent album Son Of The Moon, a collaboration with rapper and fellow UW-Madison student Basi. At this show, Bhairav will play an instrumental set and delve into some of his more left-field material. Alivia Kleinfeldt is the co-founder of the gorgeously gloomy Madison band Dash Hounds, and will play here in a solo set, drawing on some of that band's material and throwing in a few other surprises. Kleinfeldt's yearning vocals and elegantly winding guitar lines were a big part of what made Dash Hounds' 2016 debut EP, Eft, a special release, so we're excited to hear what Kleinfeldt does in this setting. A ticket presale is available now, and there's a discount for Tone Madison Patreon supporters—Scott Gordon
