When: Wed., Oct. 20, 9:30 p.m. 2010
Price: Free

Last year's Sycamore presented the debut collaboration between Tortoise multi-instrumentalist Douglas McCombs and guitarist David Daniell, a Chicago-based tone explorer as comfortable with intricate, picked lines, as with iridescent, long-form drones. Full of smolder and flutter, Sycamore's four pieces don't so much climax as simply climb, with slowly circling parts from lap steel, processed electric guitar and pattering drums coalescing into arching instrumentals. Daniell and McCombs bring two guitars tonight; expect their sound to fill the slim space of Neptunes with a warm, wobbly glow. —Grayson Currin
