Great Scott to host alternative hip-hop’s Astronautalis

Great Scott is set to host Astronautalis on Sunday, Nov. 5 at 9:30 p.m. The alternative hip-hop artist will be joined by special guests Ceschi and Layto.

Astronautalis is on the road showcasing selections from his latest studio long-player, Cut the Body Loose, which emerged back in May 2016 via SideOneDummy Records. The 11-track collection, the musician’s most successful release to date, debuted at No. 3 on Billboard’s Heatseekers Albums chart. Recorded with longtime producer, engineer, and musical collaborator John Congleton, who previously worked with St. Vincent and Modest Mouse, Cut the Body Loose is anchored by the single “SIKE!”

This Is Our Science, the hip-hop star’s previous full-length, was released in September 2011 and was supported by the track “Midday Moon.” The album featured collaborations with Tegan Quin of Tegan and Sara, Isaiah Toothtaker, P.O.S., Sims, Cecil Otter, and Lazerbreak, in addition to members of Riverboat Gamblers and Midlake.

Also on the bill is Ceschi, a hip-hop recording artist from Connecticut. The genre-hopping rapper has released four solo albums since 2004, including his most recent, Broken Bone Ballads, via his Fake Four Inc. back in 2015. He has previously toured with Astronautalis as well as Sage Francis and Busdriver.

Layto, a singer-songwriter from the Boston area will serve as opening act. The pop recording artist is currently making traction with the singles “Rabbit Ears” and “Waves.”

Tickets are available for $15 here at or by calling 855-482-2090 to charge by phone. Doors open at 9 p.m. for the 18 and over event. Great Scott is located at 1222 Commonwealth Avenue in Allston, Massachusetts. For more information, visit Astronautalis’ website and Great Scott’s website.
