Marco Benevento @ Headliners

Thursday, Sept. 27

Headliners Music Hall
1386 Lexington Road
$15; 9 p.m.

Marco Benevento continues his exploration of the outer limits of keyboards on his latest, TigerFace, which features a dizzying array of musicians. The songs range from the Terry Riley meets the Go-Go’s opening “Limbs of a Pine” to what sounds like a soundtrack for an indie movie, “Eagle Rock.” So when his trio, with Dave Dreiwitz (bass) and Andy Borger (drums), plays here, it’s going to be interesting to see what effects, loops and such they use to recreate (or expand on) the tunes. You don’t want to skip the opening band, led by his Garage a Trois bandmate Mike Dillon. Dillon’s new disc, Urn, features the multi-threat vibraphonist/percussionist/singer on music that ranges from funky jazz to psychedelic ska. Benevento and Dillon share a penchant for genre-mixing, promising an adventurous evening. —Martin Z. Kasdan Jr.
