Eight Gigs: Tensnake
Fri., Nov. 18, 9:30 p.m., Midtown Barfly, $25
Perhaps you’re familiar with “Coma Cat,” Tensnake’s 2010 hit? The disco-pop track catapulted the German producer from the underground circuit to international fame—but don’t count on hearing it live. Tensnake is now on tour supporting his new EP, Freunchen, which feels like a revival of his pre-cat days: ’80s-tinged, feel-good, wanna-dance disco and deep house unafraid of subdued moments. It’s his second release of the year, and the two-song Desire sounds in sync, abandoning the pop constructs and vocals of his major label debut, 2014’s Glow. Welcome Tensnake back to the seedy clubs of the world. 1119 21st Street, www.tensnake.com.
