That 1 Guy

9 p.m. Tuesday, October 16. Billiken Club, 20 North Grand Boulevard.

Music critics are quick to compare That 1 Guy (né Mike Silverman) to Dr. Seuss, just because he plays a self-constructed instrument called the Magic Pipe that resembles a luleelurah. However, Theodor Geisel was no musician, and That 1 Guy is nothing short of a real life Ziggy Stardust sent to mock the mainstream. The musical savant's Magic Pipe is an instrumental coup of galvanized steel pipes, bass strings, processors, filters, plugs, wires, duct tape and probably some pieces of the ENIAC. He uses said contraption to magnetize minds with the alt-sex pulse of Nine Inch Nails, the lyrical irreverence of the Eels and Spinal Tap's sense of humor, creating a cumulative effect that inarguably kicks Dr. Seuss' ass.
