Columbia College student Nick Zanca, also known as mastermind producer Mister Lies, is scheduled to play a show at the Yacht Club on Thursday, April 4. He combines looping vocal lines with sweeping synth and sharp percussion and bass to create mesmerizing dance tracks. His first studio album, Mowgli, came out on February 28 and has received high marks from critics for his remarkable ability to innovate and experiment across genres.
