Strangers in the night: Ve­tiver

Pasatiempo - - RANDOM ACTS -

The San Fran­cisco- based band Ve­tiver, named af­ter a woodsy-smelling In­dian bunch­grass, plays a vel­vety amal­gam of 1970s soft rock, South­ern Cal­i­for­nia country, and elec­tronic folk, in­fused with a smooth jazz aes­thetic that washes over the lis­tener like bath­wa­ter — sort of a neo-hip­pie vibe with syn­the­siz­ers. The group, fronted by singer/song­writer Andy Cabic, re­leased its first al­bum in 2004. Now on tour for its new al­bum, Com­plete Strangers, Ve­tiver plays at the Meow Wolf Arts Com­plex (1352 Ru­fina St., 505-780-5548) on Sun­day, April 24, at 7:30 p.m., with open­ing band Tall Tales and the Sil­ver Lin­ing. The two groups have sim­i­lar styles, but Tall Tales and the Sil­ver Lin­ing veers a bit more to­ward Jack­son Browne-cen­tric clas­sic rock. Tick­ets, $12 in ad­vance, can be pur­chased at www.hold­myt­icket.com; it’s $17 at the door. — Jen­nifer Levin
