Friday is a eventful night, but when you're done having fun with Joey Bada$$ at Psi U, you should head to the WestCo Cafe where electronic artists, Oorutaichi and Groundislava, will be playing late into the night! Groundislava (AKA Jasper Patterson) comes all the way from Venice, California where he is an established member of Shlohmo's Wedidit crew (featuring other artists such as Juj, Jonwayne, and RL Grime). He released a full length album on Friends of Friends this past August and it's simply phenomenal. Through mixing interesting hip hop beats with an obvious videogame nostalgia and putting it all over beautiful soundscapes, Groundislava puts out some of the most interesting music that you all want to hear. Check him out!

Opening, will be Oorutaichi. Here is what Hibiki Mizuno has to say about him:
"Oorutaichi (aka Taichi Moriguchi), who hails from Osaka, Japan, has been creating “imaginary electronic folklore” music since 1999. Citing wide-ranging influences from The Residents, The Doors, T. Rex, Aphex Twin, underground mid-90s Japanese bands to dancehall reggae, Oorutaichi wants to make music that nobody has heard before. The results are futuristic, “space disco” pop that explodes in loops, experimental beats and made-up language that lure you to the dance floor. His records, “Yori Yo Yo”, “Drifting My Folklore” and “Cosmic Coco” have gained wide international acclaim (Pitchfork, BBC Radio). Come join Oorutaichi’s extravagant orbit of unparalleled sounds, colors and electro-land."
