Alt-R&B newcomer Jarell Perry's debut LP "Simple Things" provides the sort of electronic/indie rock/pop hybrid that modern listeners have shown a certain 21st Century lust for (Frank Ocean, anyone?). In true new millenium fashion, Perry developed a robust YouTube following, which led him to work with urban heavyweights (and devoted YouTube scouts) Usher and Childish Gambino. The rest is history in the making. Catch the Orange, CA native before he's selling out the Hollywood Bowl for a free month-long residency at the Bootleg Theater. We attended last night's show to meet the man himself—here, our best photos from the night.
