The 2016 return of Fog, the beloved project of the prolific and ever-experimental Minneapolis musician Andrew Broder, ended a nearly decade-long span without a new Fog album. April’s For Good was immediately well received, a genre-less showcase of Broder’s emotive singing voice and knack for inventive electronic texturing. The rest of his catalog, which includes four other Fog full-lengths and records with rock outfits Lateduster and the Cloak Ox, has long since made him a seminal figure in Minnesota music. Along the way, he’s made more than a few friends, making possible his weekly residency this month at the Turf Club, dubbed “Andrew Broder & People: A Residency for Music and Action.” For this first show, he’ll be joined by rapper Crescent Moon (aka Alexei Moon Casselle, with whom Broder released a six-song EP last year) and experimental hip-hop outfit Kill the Vultures (Crescent Moon and producer Anatomy), plus Poliça’s Channy Leaneagh, who will spin a DJ set. Proceeds will be donated to the Confederation for Somali Community in Minnesota. Low’s Alan Sparkhawk and St. Paul R&B wunderkind Dizzy Fae are among the guests set to perform at future shows.

Andrew Broder started off as a battling, scratching turntablist in the mid 90’s. While his main project, Fog took him further and further away from his hip-hop roots, Andrew re-immersed himself in something like rap in 2011, and all is right in the world again. BrodR is the moniker under which he creates and performs beats, instrumental and / or for rappers.
