DIANE CLUCK

THURSDAY 3/6

DIANE CLUCK, SONDRA SUN-ODEON, JORDAN O'JORDAN

Anti-folk veteran Diane Cluck's seventh album and first in eight years, Boneset, was released March 4, and it was more than worth the wait. Unfurling like a frontier of lyrically poignant introspection, Cluck's pure, airy voice possesses a near-skeletal quality as she envelops her listener in a narrative web. Her near-hollow vocal delivery toys delicately like a less-fairy-dusted Joanna Newsom, though her more recent output has strayed from those woodland-folk-goddess roots and forayed into a more rugged backwoods territory. Cluck's technical dexterity and visceral worldliness make her earthy neo-folk a keenly beautiful force. This tour marks her first Seattle appearance in six years, and she's joined tonight by cellist Isabel Castellvi. On tour with Sondra Sun-Odeon, whose kaleidoscopic haunted forest folk similarly ignites a magical serenity, with local support from banjo-toting storyteller Jordan O'Jordan. Gallery 1412, 8 pm, $10.

YOURYOUNGBODY, BARDO:BASHO, BRIANA MARELA

This awesomely lady-dominated bill highlights three local up-and-coming acts in experimental, ambient, and dance music. Youryoungbody's supercharged sensuousness and powerfully dance-ready beats should move reluctant Northwest bodies onto the floor with ease. These are the sort of intense, throbbing electronic pulses that propel with a dark and fleshly insistence, stimulating even the most fun-averse to flail rhythmically. Conversely, ambient tones from Bardo:Basho and Briana Marela's ethereal electronic drift usher in a quiet beauty to the night. Heartland, 8 pm.

SATURDAY 3/8

MSELASCO, YAWNING GATES, RICHIE DAGGER'S CRIME

As part of Georgetown Art Attack, Atelier Coffee will be hosting a night of local bedroom-borne pop. Richie Dagger's Crime is ambient dub at its most whimsical, a multitextured plunge into lo-fi pop techno. The post-witch-house/dub-tropi-step songs on Collection of Singles (CTPAK Records) cross genres faster than I can type hyphens: One song sounds like a more-psych-loving, less-huggably-beardo Grizzly Bear, another like a post-dubstep version of Radiohead's Kid A touchstone "Idioteque." Whatever you want to call it, Richie Dagger's Crime's chill-friendly, low-key beats will also pair perfectly with the free eight-ounce espresso, cocoa, and chai drinks Atelier will be serving during the event. Atelier Coffee Company, 6 pm, donation. recommended
