Ahleuchatistas, Savage Knights, Cantwell Gomez & Jordan

When: Tue., June 7, 9:30 p.m. 2011

Throughout Ahleuchatistas' near-decade in action, guitarist Shane Perlowin has been its only consistent member. He identifies largely as a jazz musician, and the Asheville act has indeed morphed with time from a precision-bop/math-rock hybrid into its current frenzied exploration of texture and non-Western tonality. It's complicated, heady stuff—potentially too smart for its own good—but Perlowin is a great guitarist and a joy to watch. Middle band Savage Knights play hybrid jazz, like Ornette Coleman and John Zorn dipping in the third stream. Durham's Cantwell, Gomez & Jordan round out the evening with deliciously quirky art punk. The show starts at 9:30 p.m. —Corbie Hill
