Laura Scarborough

Living in Austin, Texas, hasn’t prevented Laura Scarborough from becoming a primary composer for the Kansas City “performance fusion” ensemble Quixotic. Utilizing the magic of online file sharing, Scarborough — a singer for the Austin band Lila’s Medicine — adds vocals and keyboard textures to Quixotic’s tribal scores. Tonight, Scarborough will perform twice: first as a backing musician for a scaled-down Quixotic performance, then as a solo artist accompanying herself with keyboards, accordion, vibraphone, laptop and hula hoop. Left to her own devices, Scarborough presents a multimedia-enhanced take on the head-tweaking electronica of Portishead and Massive Attack.
