No other phrase encapsulates the full range of Watts' abilities, yet "performance artist" seems a wan and insufficient catchall for his varied talents. Watts is a versatile beatboxer with a prodigious vocal range and peerless improvisational skills. He's equal parts musician, comedian, and an unquantifiable something that is probably genius. Watching him perform is a singularly unnerving experience, as though the rules of communication as you know them have been dissolved; as though language is passing through a flux capacitor on its route from his mouth to your ears. An audacious wit, unfailingly poised stage presence, and very big hair complete the Watts package—for my money, this is the place to be on New Year's. ALISON HALLETT
