Silent lucidity

Wax Tablet

• After a brief stint of un-Googleability, the Lucid have gone back to being known as DOMINIC AND THE LUCID. We applauded Dom's modesty at the switch, but yeah, this is probably the right thing to do. See their finely-aged jam when they tribute the Band after a screening of LAST WALTZ, November 26 at the State Theatre.

• Some notes on a big upcoming show benefiting marine wildlife and coastal fisheries. The JASON SPOONER TRIO, fresh from a national tour with Boston's Ryan Montbleau Band (which found them opening for B.B. King, Jackie Greene, and Sara Bareilles), donate a set of their rollicking, goodtimes pop to the cause. Spooner's had a sturdy 2011, raking in adulation from NPR, WCLZ, the Food Network, Starbucks, and High Times for his band's latest record Sea Monster. For the fish gig, he's recruited local fave PETE KILPATRICK BAND, whose DMB-inspired janglers have been pleasing crowds and winning local trophies since 2004. The catch is that in the eight years these guys have been playing out, they've never once shared a bill until now. So if you care a lick about the fishing industry, and feel like groovin' out to a doubleshot of contemporary folk-pop, get to the Port City Music Hall November 18th.

• Fans of TYLER JACKSON's Foam Castles project've gotta be buzzy about the dude's two new offshoot groups. The first comes as a warped, mostly instrumental six-song EP by NICE CAST, GENEVA, a bedroom experiment that sounds like a Foam Castles record might if it'd been lightly baked in a woodstove. Titled Ties to Space and clocking in at 13 minutes, we recommend it for on-the-go meals, quick drives to Kettle Cove, or tackling the dishes. The second is ENDLESS JAGS, where Jackson's not the primary songwriter but one of three(!) guitarists kicking up a glorious din. Too early to tell what these dudes truly sound like (early offerings feature full, propulsive, almost scrape-y guitars), but their pedigree (F.C., Gully, Brenda, Haru Bangs, and uh . . . Astronautalis) are some of the boldest going. Nice Cast are probably studio-only, but the Jags play Geno's next week.
