Kishi Bashi at the Hi-Tone Cafe 

Kishi Bashi is the solo recording and performing moniker of K. Ishibashi, a violinist who has been a touring member of Georgia indie-rockers Of Montreal and of New York piano-pop singer Regina Spektor's band. Kishi Bashi released his solo debut album, 151a, this spring. It's a sunny, hazy, gentle collection of orchestral pop, with experimental touches that provide bits of rhythm and playfulness that make the album more accessible, not more forbidding. 151a feels like such an obsessive studio creation that you wonder how it would translate onstage, but descriptions of his violin-and-loops live show make Kishi Bashi's sound reminiscent of quirky/brainy pop cult fave Andrew Bird. Kishi Bashi plays the Hi-Tone Café on Sunday, August 5th, with New York indie rockers Tall Tall Trees. Doors open at 8 p.m. Admission is $10.
