Diminished Men

Inescapable references to David Lynch, Ennio Morricone, and all things sonically surreal notwithstanding, Diminished Men’s willfully obtuse approach to arrangements and aggressively innovative use of the rich space in between notes is one of this city’s most unheralded musical treasures. Tonight’s show in the Triple Door’s auxiliary lounge, the Musicquarium, is one of the last chances to catch the venue’s month-long Speakeasy series, which features the Men playing against the visually mesmerizing backdrop of classic films. Tonight’s offering is Michelangelo Antonioni’s late-‘60s mod-noir masterpiece, Blow-Up, a film originally scored by jazz savant Herbie Hancock. HANNAH LEVIN
