Seattle sound engineer Scott Colburn has gained notoriety for his studio sorcery with Animal Collective, Mudhoney, and others, but his most interesting work occurs under his Jabon guise. Dressed in a "dark wizard robe and weird harlequin mask" and manipulating a stack of analog keyboards, Jabon subsumes his ego—and his surrounding environs—in chthonic tone poems written in ectoplasmic free verse. It's chilling, immersive stuff that deftly jumps beyond the horror-film audio corn to which much "dark ambient" music stoops. (Sunset Tavern, 5433 Ballard Ave NW, 784-4880. 9 pm, $6, 21+.)
