Best known for melding electronica with live instrumentation, British producer Bonobo (a.k.a. Simon Greene) arrives in Chicago in support of his latest album, Fragments—a collection of inoffensive downtempo production that wouldn't sound out of place in a trendy coffee house. Aside from a few standout tracks (including a collaboration with Chicago singer-songwriter Jamila Woods), Greene's latest batch of tunes is a bit more bland than some of his previous work, so keep your fingers crossed that he pays some attention to his older tracks, which meld trip-hop with jazz instrumentation and orchestral flourishes. New Zealand soul and R&B singer-songwriter Jordan Rakei opens the show.
