Soooo... as far as surprises go, tonight's secret guest is not exactly a Sherlock Holmes–caliber mystery. Unless Aphex Twin snuck in there while we weren't watching (and he is a tricky bastard), the only Warp Records recording artist in town for Bumbershoot this weekend is loopy IDM-fiddler-turned-soul-crooner Jamie Lidell. And the Crocodile would be a lovely, slightly more intimate place than the Seattle Center grounds to see the dapper Mr. Lidell do his thing. Whether looping his solo beatboxing into odd, spittle-flecked funk jams or leading his sometimes freaky band (double sax, holy robes) in mostly faithful soul reviews, Lidell is an utterly charming performer. His records have grown increasingly trad over the years, but here's hoping tonight's show, away from the family festival crowds and back in the nightclub, will inspire him to get down to the weird.
