August is always the hottest month in Washtenaw County, and therefore one of the most stressful. Consider Baths a choice prescription for effervescent sonic relaxation. The solo electronic project of LA native Will Wiesenfeld, Baths is a collection of delicate, almost dainty vocal lines set to relaxing and percussive beats. Weisenfield's music is the perfect electronic soundtrack for an afternoon under a parasol, lying back with your eyes closed. Weisenfeld's first album, Cerulean, made a few best-of lists in 2010, including at Pitchfork.com and The A.V. Club. His 2013 sophomore album, Obsidian, has likewise garnered positive press. Expect choice cuts from both albums to cool the Blind Pig down during the late summer blaze. 9pm. $12 advance / $15 door. The Blind Pig, 208 S. 1st St. 734-996-8555. www.blindpigmusic.com—JS
