READINGS & TALKS

TUESDAY

MUSIC

Anand Wilder with Mt Fog Add to a List
After indie rock trio Yeasayer split in 2019, co-founder and multi-instrumentalist Anand Wilder found himself acclimating from a life of consistent touring to quarantining with his family in their Brooklyn home. It was in this climate that Wilder began recording his debut solo album, I Don't Know My Words, a homespun acoustic album that takes cues from '70s folk-rock to tell vulnerable tales of the pandemic panic and confinement-driven romantic challenges. He will play in support of the album alongside folktronica project Mt Fog.
(Fremont Abbey Arts Center, Fremont)

Son Lux Add to a List
The experimental NYC-based trio Son Lux, who recently composed the soundtrack for the sci-fi blockbuster Everything Everywhere All at Once, finds a unique sound by combining equal parts post-rock and electronica. The band will play songs off of their album, Tomorrows III, after a set from Brooklyn rapper Nappy Nina.
(Neptune Theatre, University District)

Vieux Farka Touré Add to a List
Many have called Touré “the Hendrix of the Sahara,” but if so, it's the Hendrix of “Little Wing” and “One Rainy Wish,” not of “Fire” or “Love or Confusion.” Generally, though, the comparison's a stretch, because Vieux's touch is so beguilingly feathery and fluid and averse to the wild distortions that marked Jimi's work. Both musicians are virtuosi, obviously, but in quite different idioms. Touré doesn't need to bask in the reflected glory of saint Jimi, but if the tag draws more people to explore the former's music, that's cool. DAVE SEGAL
