Feeling bored with, and restricted by, his instrument, classically trained bassist Mark Silverman traded his bass for a homemade rig he calls The Magic Pipe, and started slapping out and looping bizarre, futuristic, psychedelic funk songs with titles like “The Moon is Disgusting,” “Buttmachine,” “Suckatash” and “Laser Beans.” Silverman, who performs as That 1 Guy, promises a pre-show magic act for VIP ticket holders and “no more Mr. Nice-That 1 Guy” on his Rainbows On Demand tour. “I’m bringing all my toys, lights, cameras, rock ’n’ roll, awoooooo!” he says.

Monday, February 20. $10-12, 8:30pm. The Southern Café and Music Hall. 103 S. First St., 977-5590.
