Junkie XL

In another universe, Neumos could have easily been named something else—and for one night, it essentially will be. For a show themed around graphic novel Shinjuku, illustrated by Final Fantasy artist Yoshitaka Amano and authored by Christopher “Mink” Morrison, the club will transform into one of the book’s central locations, Poppies—complete with costumed actors and a signing by Mink himself. The benefit concert for local charity-focused nonprofit Noise For The Needy is headlined by the Grammy-nominated Tom Holkenborg, better known as Dutch electronic artist Junkie XL, whose remix catalog touches on the works of pop acts like Britney Spears and Elvis and has been featured in video games from The Sims to Need For Speed. The bill also includes by Capitol Hill’s hell-raising hipster-hoppers Mad Rad, playing their last show before May’s Sasquatch! Music Festival. With Truckasaurus, Seattle Konkon Taiko. NICK FELDMAN
