Press play

Endtroducing… dropped all the way back in 1996, but DJ Shadow’s experiment in instrumental hip-hop brought the man unexpected acclaim, and a sound that is still influencing artists across genres. He’s retreated back to the underground in the years since his debut, but Shadow remains just as invested in perfecting and pushing the contemporary musical scope. 2011’s The Less You Know, The Better sees him dabbling in dubstep and trip-hopping through a cycle of instruments. Old dogs and new tricks are finally getting their due.

Thursday 3/28 $25, 9pm. The Jefferson Theater, 110 E. Main St., Downtown Mall. 245-4980.
