Live Note: Tycho @ Fonda Theatre, October 6, 2016

Live Note: Tycho @ Fonda Theatre, October 6, 2016

Photo: Tycho at 2013 Lightning in a Bottle Festival, but he looked very similar at the Fonda last night.

Tycho, the ambient/rock instrumental brainchild of Scott Hansen, played the first of a pair of “pop-up” (e.g., short notice) shows at the Fonda Theatre Thursday evening. The Tycho crowd, sold out here tonight, leans young and diverse, no doubt accruing fans from his EDM association, while not strictly slotting into that genre. Performing as a four-piece – Hansen, synths & guitars; Rory O’Connor, drums; Zac Brown, bass & guitar; Billy Kim, bass & synths—with a sparse stage setup, the show marked the occasion of the surprise drop of Epoch, his fourth full length album a week prior. Pop-up shows and surprise album drops, of course signs of the times in an industry where novelty is not only welcome but increasingly necessary to stand apart in the crowded marketplace.
