GRiZ Grant Kwiecinski describes his approach to electronic music like this: “I don’t have fancy recording equipment, amazing speakers, crazy keyboards, complicated sample packs, proper studio time, cutting edge midi controllers, or outboard mixing gear. What I do have is an endless imagination of the future/now, unrelenting will, constant fascination, and a heart that has no capacity to stop loving and trying. This business — when you boil it down — is not about the machine, but about the man.” See the man at the Middle East. April 6, 8 p.m. $20-$23. 18+. Middle East Downstairs, 472-480 Mass. Ave., Cambridge. 617-864-3278, www.mideastclub.com
