The Orb and Inconceivable Master Plan

Almost setting itself up as the EDM version of a classic-rock band, the Orb is on the road marking its 25th anniversary. Founder Alex Paterson pioneered acid-house and sampling techniques when he started the group in the late-’80s, collaborating then with KLF’s Jimmy Cauty and Killing Joke bassist (and future U2 and Verve producer) Martin “Youth” Glover and crafting such influential singles as the Rickie Lee Jones-echoing “Little Fluffy Clouds.” In recent years, he and latter-day partner Thomas Fehlmann have continued to craft ambient yet playful albums — but they haven’t toured a whole lot, until now. Improv trio IMP and Woody McBride’s Deep Mix Minneapolis open. Chris Riemenschneider
