Tickets: Get ‘Em

Venue: Riviera Theatre

Straight outta Chicago comes Cofresi is a beatmaker and drummer. His music may be in the electronic/dance music sphere, but unlike his counterparts he doesn’t just rely on a Mac computer to churn out the same beats and bass drops. Instead, Cofresi uses his drum set and a live beat production to create lush soundscapes that make you wanna groove. His songs have more groove than most harsh electronic music making it something memorable. He dropped his debut EP Nuveau on Soundcloud six months ago. It’s a mixture of originals and remixes of popular songs, like Rihanna’s “Stay.” After playing  two knock out sets at Reaction New Years Eve show in Chicago, Cofresi returns to home turf to play the Riviera Theatre on April 9th. He and Goldfish will be the opening acts for headliner The Floozies.

Get a taste of Cofresi with the track “Mode” from his debut EP Nuveau:
