Besides being a fantastic local producer who’s worked with the likes of THEESatisfaction, Shabazz Palaces, and the Moondoggies, Erik Blood is also a talented musician. Last year, his super-sexy (literally, it’s about porn) solo release Touch Screens was one of the few albums everyone at The Stranger could agree was great. That doesn’t happen often! And strangely, when it does, it’s often regarding albums Blood has had something to do with—THEESatisfaction and Shabazz Palaces are Stranger Genius finalists and award winners, respectively. Don’t miss your chance to see a man who makes sonic magic. (Vera Project, Seattle Center,, 7:30 pm, $11, all ages)
