After dropping an EP on the first day of the year, Shapers has spent most of 2012 being pretty quiet (save for their Instagram feed). But their bandcamp promises the experimental group is working on a new LP, so hopefully more live performances is a sign they want to test the new stuff out.
Wednesday, September 12th: Victor Villarreal at Double Door (7:30 PM, 21+, $8)
A quick listen to this year’s Invisible Cinema will find the same enigmatic and constantly moving guitar riffs that Villarreal delivered in Cap’n Jazz, Ghosts and Vodka, and Owls.
Thursday, September 13th: Daniel Knox at Saki (6:30 PM, AA, FREE)
At various times, Knox blends together Eastern European folk, Andrew Bird-like Americana and his soulful croon. Backed by whimsical piano, accordion, brass and various other arrangements, the intimate record store will be an interesting space for his performance.
Friday, September 14th: ProbCause at Reggie’s Rock Club (10 PM, 18+, $18)
Last year, ProbCause dropped a mixtape called Stir Fry, an appropriate title. The local MC drops rhymes over R&B, jazz, electronica, and hip-hop beats for an eclectic sound.
Saturday, September 15th: Brain Frame 8 at Happy Dog Gallery (9 PM, AA, $7)
The performative comic arts series is back. Six artists that are given the time to give life to their comics in which ever manner they find most appropriate. This includes but is not limited to music, projections, slideshows, costumes, and more. More info on Facebook.
Sunday, September 16th: Spires That in the Sunset Rise at Burlington (9 PM, 21+, $7)
Ancient Patience Wills it Again is one of the more haunting albums to be released this year. Live, the duo experiments with a variety of instruments (harmonium, autoharp, banjo) and dynamic song structures.
Monday, September 17th: Love of Everything at Empty Bottle (9:30 PM, 21+, FREE)
Off-and-on minimalist lo-fi indie rockers return from an East Coast tour. The solo project from Bobby Burg (Joan of Arc, Make Believe) that is more straightforward than you may expect from his Kinsella associations.
