Simon Green, better known by his stage name Bonobo, graced his adoring fans at ACL after show at Emo’s East for a late 11:30PM set. His Friday mid-day ACL set and previous shows have had high acclaim on this round of touring, but there is something about the dedication to these rare, midnight sets. Fans were dancing in full costumes as the energy level never dipped well through 1:00 AM Sunday morning. This tour finds fans treated not only to his brand of ambient and world bending grooves, but his current show is backed by a fantastic, talented multi-instrumental live band and rising London based soul singer Szjerdene. You have one last chance this weekend to catch the whole show at 6:15PM Friday at the Tito’s Handmade Vodka Stage.
