The Riverside Theater
116 W Wisconsin Ave.

Best known as the creator and host of Adult Swim’s hit late night talk show series The Eric Andre Show, Eric Andre continues to rattle the minds of TV censors, celebrity guests and viewers alike. With the help of his longtime friend and profoundly apathetic co-host Hannibal Buress, Andre brings his own flare to what is otherwise a very organized and predictable late night routine and puts his guests into situations they never thought they would end up in with his unrelenting and constantly over the top humor. Catch his live stand-up at the Riverside Theater with a stop on his “Legalize Everything Tour.”

+ special guest Channel Tres
Thursday, October 31
7p.m. Doors • 8 p.m. Show
Turner Hall Ballroom
1034 Vel R. Phillips Ave.
Milwaukee, WI 53203
Toro y Moi (AKA Chaz Bear) was one of the first artists to be dubbed ‘chillwave’ due to the underwater, laid-back sounds of his 2009 single Blessa, but as each subsequent record and project he undertook headed off in an unpredictable direction, that tag was left in the dust. Whether digging into ‘80s R&B, house music, space age pop, prog or guitar-heavy power pop, Chaz never sticks to a formula when he could experiment. Even when tapping into the mainstream zeitgeist, his innate melodic gifts and sonic shapeshifting qualities always shine through. With heavy influences from Daft Punk, Caribbean funk and modern pop, Chaz’s latest album as Toro y Moi, Outer Peace, came out earlier this year.
