Karl Blau

It's been three years since Karl Blau released his last proper album on K Records, 2009's Afro-centric Zebra, but he's continued maintaining a steady output of new music via his Kelp Lunacy Advanced Plagiarism Society series, collections of Blau's "songs and sounds, orchestrations and field recordings," the most recent of which was September's KLAPS #32, the rhythmic, flute-tooting Songles. Of course, Blau also keeps busy with his constant collaborations; tonight he'll be joined by the latest incarnation of Clyde Petersen's broad-based, ever-fluctuating indie-rock collective Your Heart Breaks. In the spring, the band released a mischievous new album called Harsh Tokes and Bong Jokes; Blau played guitar and saxophone on the album and also recorded it in three days on a 4-track reel-to-reel at his Anacortes studio. With Nana Grizol, Jordan O'Jordan. ERIN K. THOMPSON
