This important benefit show for the thousands affected by the earthquake in Nepal is headlined by the Spider Ferns, the rising wife/husband duo of Kelly and Alton Fleek. Based in tiny Alger, Washington, they record gleaming, sensual songs that split the difference between triphop and dreamy pop. Their very good 2015 album Soon Enough features Kelly’s silky, languid vocals hovering over the pair’s artfully minimalist compositions that deploy keyboards, guitar, and bass. It’s a stripped-down urban sound created in the boonies, designed to give you shivers. Jazz-fusion quartet Rik Wright’s Fundamental Forces forge intensely dynamic and emotionally freighted pieces that range from Terje Rypdal’s chill meditativeness to the majestic sweep of Charles Mingus’s The Black Saint and the Sinner Lady. Seattle’s Michael Wohl picks a mean guitar in the fluidly tangled manner of folk-blues immortals Leo Kottke and John Fahey. No matter how many versions of this style come down the pike, it never fails to transport one to a much more idyllic headspace. Proceeds for tonight’s show go to mycare.org. DAVE SEGAL
