Music Scene: DJ Cory Wythe (Marvel Years) and other area shows for Oct. 6–12
A marvel beyond his years, guitar “shredder” and DJ Cory Wythe (aka Marvel Years), will perform at 9 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 11, at Mesa Theater, 538 Main St.
Marvel Years is much more than your average producer, says his bio at marvelyearsmusic.com.
“In just a short period of time, his progression has become outright impossible to ignore. Much more than your average DJ/producer, Marvel Years is an incredible guitarist that shreds well beyond his years.”
Wythe’s first live show was just four years ago, when he opened for fellow EDM artist Pretty Lights in Boston. A month later, he made “a surprise guest appearance performing two of his tracks alongside Mikey Thunder at a Pretty Lights sold-out Red Rocks show,” the bio says.
The following year he launched his debut national tour, the “Retro Electro Tour,” with Krooked Drivers and Muzzy, playing smaller venues and clubs. He has since played events, festivals and big name venues, including a sold-out House of Blues Chicago show.
Citing classic rock as a big influence, Wythe blends electronic beats and guitar and remixes, creating glitch-hop/electro-soul dance music — “a sound that is a unique hybrid of EDM combining glitch, retro-funk, classic rock, soul, jazz and hip-hop.”
“I love breathing new life into those older songs. I think that’s a good medium for bringing new listeners into my music because they can relate to that stuff. I improvise (on live guitar) over a lot of my stuff.”
Mesa Theater doors open at 6 p.m. and Mikey Thunder will join Wythe at the show.
Tickets cost $10–$12, and can be purchased at mesatheater.com. Call 773-1775 for information.
