Chris Pureka, Xylos 

When: Sat., April 17, 8:30 p.m. 2010
Price: $10–$12
Massachusetts artist Chris Pureka’s not built for pigeonholes. From her name to her androgynous appearance to husky vocals that linger between tenor and alto, she challenges categorization. That same spirit’s apparent on her third full-length, How I Learned to See in the Dark. A terrifically taut, haunted album, it forsakes the jangly Indigo folk of her first two releases for a moody twang whose ache lingers like smoke. Brooklyn opener Xylos explore textured pop with baroque, electronic and world-beat elements that connect it to Yeasayer and Vampire Weekend. —Chris Parker
