Mike Silverman calls himself That1Guy, and you can rest assured that he’s definitely one of a kind.
He returns to Red Square in Albany on Friday (March 22), bringing his futuristic funk sound and new tour, “That1Guy & The Magic Pipe Present: An Evening of Musical Magical Wonder… The Likes of Which Ye Haven’t Yet Seen,” to town.
The Magic Pipe? Yes, the Magic Pipe… an utterly unique seven-foot-tall musical instrument/invention created from a collection of steel plumbing pipes and joints, orchestral bass strings and electronics. Other musical creations from the way-left-of-center mind of That1Guy include such innovative concoctions as the Magic Boot and the Magic Saw.
“I like being my own person,” he says. “I didn’t set out to be a weirdo, but I’m starting to embrace it.”
