Norwegian outfit Jaga Jazzist have been mashing up jazz, electronics and rock via intriguing instrumental compositions since the group's founding members met in high school. Fans of similarly genre-fluid acts like Tortoise and Stereolab will feel at home among the lush, progressive arrangements of the band's 2015 release, Starfire. The group plays two date in Chicago, first at Lincoln Hall with support from Sea and Cake frontman Sam Prekop. The following day, the band performs a free show as part of the 2017 Millennium Park Summer Music Series, with support from Central African electronic producer Afrotronix.
