Vetiver at Kings; Gautam Malkani's Londonstani at The Regulator

Wednesday, July 12 



KINGS--Vetiver runs like an age-old river through a day-old community, wise and loose and knowing, a gorgeous, enviable peace permeating waters of smooth-sailing beauty. Acoustic guitar, lithe strings and barely there percussion coalesce in easy, inviting figures, offering a rock-a-by cradle for the gently enchanting voice of Andy Cabic, a northern Virginia native who cut his teeth in the ahead-of-the-curve Greensboro band Raymond Brake. Cabic headed to San Francisco and befriended Devendra Banhart just as that whole freak-folk flag started waving. Now, as one of Banhart's chief collaborators and as the leader upon the marvelous hills of Vetiver, Cabic brings a song-subservient maturity and ease to a scene that has always threatened to harbor to its own esoteric nature a bit too much. The band's new album, To Find Me Gone, is an underexposed gem. Heavy Pets and Noncanon open at 10 p.m. --Grayson Currin



REGULATOR BOOKSHOP--Following in the footsteps of London sub-culture exploit authors Martin Amis and Will Self, Malkani makes his literary debut with an exposé of Asian youth counterculture in his novel Londonstani. The struggle for racial identity within multicultural Britain prompts examination of gangster wannabes distancing themselves from their heritage and societal integration. Malkani discusses London youth culture at length and reads an excerpt from his novel at 7 p.m. The event is free. --Kathy Justice
