Hiss-soaked South Carolina space cadets Toro y Moi have a sold out show at Rock & Roll Hotel tonight, but you’re in luck: They’re playing a free show today at 1 p.m. at Sweetgreen in Dupont Circle. The occasion? It’s the most recent installment of the local salad chain’s Sweetlife Sessions series, and another extension of the brand’s imperialistic music ambitions. The store now has nine locations, and its music festival, Sweetlife, is taking place at Merriweather this year, not a parking lot. Meanwhile, Toro y Moi’s music is of a piece with Sweetgreen’s sustainable mission: It recycles several generations’ worth of AM radio sounds. (Kidding! Kind of. Toro y Moi’s latest record, Underneath the Pine, is a total peach.)
