For two nights, Australian psych-rock group the Church will play Starfish in its entirety to celebrate the album’s 30th anniversary. It makes sense to do this in the elegant setting of the Triple Door, as Starfish epitomizes a strain of rich yet understated ’80s rock that gently transports you to a dreamy destination without freakish highs or harrowing lows. (This music pairs well with the subtle Asian-fusion cuisine Wild Ginger serves to club patrons.) Nearly everyone knows and loves the hit single “Under the Milky Way,” with its spangly acoustic- and liquid electric-guitar latticework and phantasmal “bagpipe” solo. But the album is a remarkably consistent amalgam of somberly sweet melodies and translucent guitar textures, shot through with the maroon-velvet lassitude of post-Syd Pink Floyd, which somehow translates into glimmering gravitas.
