Jel is a legend, and a one of the coolest lo-fi producers in the electronic/beat realm. Sure, he's merely opening the show tonight, but he, alone, makes this show worth the trip to Seattle Center (him and maaaaybe the hand-spun cotton candy in the Center House). Middle act Busdriver is a fairly well-known genre-sloshing rapper/singer/producer/weirdo whose coolest moments come about when he's tweaking his beats on stage. Lastly, you will probably like Astronautalis if you are into Buck 65 or a comparable backpacking spoken-word-style indie rapper with a little charisma. Just get yourself some candy and get there early. TODD HAMM
