While a button-up dress shirt, slacks, and a shaggy head of hair might not scream untamed experimental synth performer, John Maus defies his uniform. His wildly expressive, hypogenic, pop-laced, Ian Curtis-esque live performances and his shimmering synth catharsis has helped the 38-year-old forge a cult following. His latest tour follows a year defined by triumph and tragedy as 2018 saw the release of Maus’ sixth record Addendum, and the sudden death of his brother and bandmate while on tour in Latvia, which forced the cancellation of his remaining tour dates. Amanda LeClaire will DJ.

John Maus will perform at 8 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 31 at El Club; 4114 W. Vernor Hwy., Detroit; 313-279-7382; elclubdetroit.com; Tickets are $20.
