Eight Gigs: The Polish Ambassador

325 Spring Street in Nevada City, http://thepolishambassador.com.

The Polish Ambassador is famed for blending world-influenced beats with funky grooves, downtempo chill and futuristic glitch; throwing epic dance parties at Burning Man; giving away his music for free; wearing a sparkly jumpsuit; and caring about the environment in the sort of real, hippie way you’d expect from a Nevada City native. As such, he’s putting on this fundraiser for his hometown’s first-ever Village Building Conference, which focuses on permaculture and ecological placemaking. Don’t miss the diplomat also perform with ethereal folk singer Ayla Nereo as Wildlight.
