Brooklyn avant-popster Tim Fite may be king of the bargain bin—he compiles his impressive, bluesy albums using samples grabbed from $1 CDs—but he puts on one high-tech show. With flat-screen TVs broadcasting narratives for each song, a fancy laptop-and-keyboard orchestra supporting Fite’s quirky guitar playing, and a truly functional imaginary ‘blood machine,’ his concerts ought to be eligible for an Obie, but he just won’t stay put. Then again, touring affords him the money to buy his snazzy tie-and-suspender combos. With Benjy Ferree and DeLeon.
