One-man-band Mobley will do it all at Underground at DIME


“The future isn’t home,” Mobley presses on the layered track “Young Adult Fiction” from Fresh Lies, Vol. I — an album he defines as “post-genre pop.” This is but one example of the incomparable Austin, Texas-based artist’s innate ability to pair varied uncertainties with lush soundscapes and hopeful resolve.

Mobley can best be described as a one-man-band: He writes, performs, and produces his music, designs his own artwork, directs his videos, and has been known to create his own instruments (many of which he learned to play by sneaking into his college’s music department after hours). This boy is on fire.

Mobley will perform at 7 p.m. on Saturday, July 21 at Underground at DIME Doors open at 7 p.m.; 1265 Griswold St., Detroit; 313-223-1600; thecrofoot.com; Tickets are $10-$12.
