Dance like no one’s watch­ing: Nick Waterhouse

Pasatiempo - - RANDOM ACTS -

Nick Waterhouse’s third al­bum, Never Twice (In­no­va­tive Leisure, 2016), is a jazzy, bluesy, doo-wop ride. Three parts retro and one part in­die rock, it’s dance­able, orig­i­nal, and fa­mil­iar all at once. This is the kind of mu­sic you might find your­self bop­ping along to in ran­dom pub­lic places with­out even mean­ing to, and when you looked around, ev­ery­one else would be groov­ing, too. The Los An­ge­les-based mu­si­cian started play­ing in bands in high school and went on to get much of his ed­u­ca­tion in show­man­ship and pro­duc­tion by way of work­ing in a record store, Rooky Ricardo’s Records in the Lower Haight district of San Fran­cisco, where vinyl re­mains king. Waterhouse plays at Sky­light (139 W. San Fran­cisco St.) on Wed­nes­day, Nov. 30, at 7:30 p.m. Tick­ets to the twenty-one-and-over show are $18 in ad­vance, $22 at the door, avail­able at www.hold­myt­icket.com/tick­ets/259979. —Jen­nifer Levin
