Xylouris White, Tashi Dorji 

When: Tue., Oct. 7, 8 p.m. 2014
Price: $14

TUESDAY, OCT. 7 If you're only scanning their respective résumés, you might not notice many similarities between Jim White and Giorgos Xylouris, especially enough to suggest a recording-and-touring collaboration. White is an Australian drummer, an anchor of the veteran instrumental trio Dirty Three and a remarkable session man with credits from Bill Callahan to PJ Harvey. Xylouris, meanwhile, is a Greek lute player born into a venerable Cretan lineage of the same. But both Xylouris and White have long looked beyond the assumed, conservative roles of their instruments. White seems to speak with his drums more than keep time, circling the kit as if tickling his brain. And with his eight acoustic strings, Xylouris moves between frantic strums that suggest an aggressive electric shredder and radiant harmonics that recall a new-age guru. Goats, the pair's debut collaboration as Xylouris White, feels like an inspired conversation about new possibilities. Tashi Dorji, a brilliant and equally exploratory Bhutanese guitarist now living in Asheville, opens. 8 p.m., $14, 111 W. Parrish St., www.thecarrack.org. —Grayson Haver Currin
