Make your Thursday night somethin’ special with this duo of dope performers set to take up residence at THE MIDDLE EAST DOWNSTAIRS tonight! Welcoming you into their wonderful musical worlds this evening will be MUTUAL BENEFIT and RICKY EAT ACID, the solo monikers of the very creative Jordan Lee and Sam Ray respectively.

A familiar face in the Boston scene who know now calls NYC home, Lee utilizes MUTUAL BENEFIT to craft ambitious, multi-dimensional experimental pop journeys along with his many collaborators. These auditory treks are mostly guided by Lee’s vocals and acoustic guitar playing, letting his folkier influences float comfortably amidst all the additional, eccentric sonic exploration.

RICKY EAT ACID sees Maryland’s Sam Ray going the experimental beats route, pulling on his own homegrown style of sonic collaging. Ray’s tracks often progress according to an organic combination of deep rhythms, miscellaneous sounds, and strong melodic colors, resulting in an addictive, unique type of techno.

So come out to THE MIDDLE EAST DOWNSTAIRS and let these two solo artists liven up your Thursday night!

9pm // 18+ // $15
