Chronic Town to Feature Emperor X

Roustabout!, SOMA and the LION 90.7fm have collaborated once again to bring a show for indie fans to Chronic Town. This time it’s Emperor X.

The show will start at 9 p.m. on Thursday, October 13 and costs $5 at the door, according to the Facebook event page. Local singer Annalisa Barron will open.

For those who don’t know him, Emperor X, or Chad Matheny, is a one-man indie pop band. Fans will be familiar with his über-short, lo-fi recordings. His songs revolve around random topics (usually in his daily life), from fixing an air conditioner to counting to nine billion.

It can be refreshing to listen to an artist who gets back to the root of what music is really about: enjoying yourself. So if you need some quirky music and a little taste of hookah to chase away the mid-semester blues, go to Chronic Town next Thursday. And feel free to check out the video below for a sample of what he does.
