Richard Lloyd spent 30-plus years as Tom Verlaine’s right-hand guitarist, so you’ll have to forgive him if he seems a bit on edge. Yes, the man who supplied so many crucial serpentine solos, incisive riffs, and workmanlike backing vocals on Television’s Marquee Moon, Adventure, and Television is back slogging it out on the small-venue circuit. (Lloyd left Television in 2007, so he didn’t participate in this year’s Marquee Moon tour.) Now 63, the New York guitar hero’s carved out a very good, if low-profile, solo career, starting with 1979’s Alchemy and running up to 2010’s Lodestones. In between, he’s played on several records by power-pop luminary Matthew Sweet and cut a bold-as-love LP of Jimi Hendrix covers titled The Jamie Neverts Story. The thing about Lloyd and Verlaine is, they never soared as high by themselves as they did together in Television. Nonetheless, it’ll be a treat to watch Richard wrest those gilded, ascendant chords from his Strat from a close vantage point. DAVE SEGAL
