An artist in every sense of the word, with a career spanning three decades of numerous books of poetry, albums and collections of drawings, former Lungfish frontman Daniel Higgs is a self-made renaissance man. For his latest project, Higgs blends simplicity and repetition in instrumentation to create an almost trance-like environment and vehicle for his poetry. With the release of Atomic Yggdrasil Tarot, one of his earliest solo albums, Higgs established a cosmic aesthetic that, when combined with the acoustic drone of his music, suggests an almost spiritual wisdom inherent in his musical offerings. Rounding out the evening are the instrumental ruminations of Trotter-Riles, the duo comprised of Tyler Trotter (formerly of The Children and The Phantom Family Halo) and Zach Riles, guitarist for Grails. Given both acts’ pedigree, this promises to be an interesting, if contemplative evening. —Syd Bishop
