Rapper/producer/songwriter Rory Ferreira's work under the MC name Milo has at once drawn listeners into the intricacies of a restless psyche and utterly defied anyone to sum him up all too tidily. A lovably cryptic lyricist? A rapper of vast if understated skill? Radically vulnerable? Mercurial? Well, maybe a bit of all of the above, but try to pin Ferreira down from any one direction and his artistry and public persona will slip from your grasp. The most evasive maneuver yet came when he announced that his current tour would be his last as Milo, even though it follows the success of his 2018 album budding ornithologists are weary of tired analogies and 2017's who told you to think??!!?!?!?! It's not clear what the future holds for his music under other monikers (including Scallops Hotel) and with his Ruby Yacht collective, but surely he'll let us know in his own time and under his own terms. He's also busy running a record store in Maine. In any case, he's given his listeners much to love and records that we'll still be puzzling over a few decades down the line. He's been generous about playing in Madison during his time as Milo, so return the love and bask in the complexity at this show. —Scott Gordon
