Benji Hughes, Wylie Hunter & the Cazadores

When: Fri., Jan. 27, 10 p.m. 2012

Benji Hughes is idiosyncratic to the extreme, displaying obvious affection for the sumptuous warmth of '70s rock, only refracted through laid-back Jackson Browne balladry, greasy blues/soul-funk grooves and a Tusk-like sense of adventure. While his 2008 debut, the double album A Love Extreme, feels 35 years old, there are nods to modern music from bubbly, textured keyboards that hint at the Flaming Lips to sputtering electro-psych club beats. But just about as suddenly as he appeared, he returned to ether. Three and a half years later, he's yet to release anything else. Flaky creative geniuses have a hard road in front of them. With Wylie Hunter & the Cazadores. —Chris Parker
