Versatile and virtuosic keyboardist/composer Wayne Horvitz flaunts two of his many facets tonight. Sweeter Than the Day is his mostly acoustic group, an elegant foray into lyrical songwriting that skews toward the somberly beautiful. Somehow they coax melodies that seem both sleek and rococo. Zony Mash is where Horvitz gets down and dirty, channeling New Orleans funk (i.e., one of the most flavorful funks) with Meters-like tightness and lubriciousness. This might be my favorite Horvitz project, up there with Pigpen and Ponga. The big rock unit V—led by Tim Young and Paul Moore—will perform a song cycle “about the greed and avarice” of political leaders, reportedly in the magniloquent style of George Harrison’s All Things Must Pass. My sweet lord, that sounds good. DAVE SEGAL
