Recent Mercury Prize winner James Blake put on one of his dazzling performances at the Riviera Theatre a couple weeks ago. His music is beautifully inventive and poetic, all while having a certain electronic edginess to it. I would venture to say that he's one of the strongest singer/songwriters in music right now. James' live show is as powerful and meticulously structured as his albums - so in other words he's a must see. Electronic musician and producer Nosaj Thing began the evening with an ambient DJ set that I really enjoyed.
