Tonight! R. Stevie Moore at RecordBar



A wave of semi-forgotten, idiosyncratic songwriters — guys like Simon Joyner, Daniel Johnston and Roky Erickson — have been resurrected in recent years as a younger generation has found its way to their work. The cult of R. Stevie Moore has expanded in a similar fashion due to his influence on such artists as John Maus, MGMT and Ariel Pink. Moore is a lo-fi songwriter with a dreamy, avant-garde take on traditional pop music. Good luck keeping up with his output — the man has released, by some estimates, more than 400 homemade tapes and CD-Rs. He's at RecordBar tonight, Monday, October 1. Mat Shoare and Rohypnol Rangers open.
