Chris Forsyth & the Solar Motel Band Residency Continues w/Support From Tin Horses & Mikele Edwards at Ortlieb’s June 13

Oh man - it’s dark, and it looks like a hard rain’s gonna fall all day. But for those who refuse to stay trapped in your place, head on over to Ortlieb’s tonight to catch the continuation of Chris Forsyth & the Solar Motel Band’s residency. Forsyth’s new backing band is made up of guitarist Paul Sukeena (Spacin’), drummer Steven Urgo (ex-War on Drugs) and bassist Peter Kerlin, and they provide a wonderful backdrop for his masterful guitar work. This evening, they’ll be bringing along Tin Horses, the bluesy psych rock project from Purling Hiss bassist Kiel Everett that travels along the dusty trail of American music history, and Arc In Round’s Mikele Edwards will be laying down some entrancingly haunting, ambient soundscapes. The combination of the supporting acts should be quite fitting for Forsyth’s self-described “cosmic Americana” tunes. Take shelter with them from the storm - it’ll be a great way to ride it out! Ortlieb’s Lounge, 847 N. 3rd St., 9pm, $6, 21+ - H.M. Kauffman 

Mikele Edwards Opening for Laetita Sadier at JB’s Sept. 23

Mikele Edwards (of Arc in Round) takes the stage on her own tonight at Johnny Brenda’s when she opens for Laetita Sadier (formerly of Stereolab). Edwards’ music is a hybrid of astral synths with ritualistic crystallized vocals that hone in on the listener in an almost chant-like fashion. It’s as if a new age space ceremony is taking place, but Edwards isn’t preaching, merely embracing the trip to the stars and describing the view. And things sound quite fine from out there. Johnny Brenda’s, 1201 N. Frankford Ave., 9pm, $12, 21+ - Michael Colavita
