I know the words experimental and pop don't typically coexist in one band description, but Ava Luna just isn't typical. As a matter of fact, certain tracks off of the new "Infinite House" record are downright weird. Jazzy spoken word, background scatting and rapid, unstable shifts in pitch and tone are just part of it. It's kind of like The Dirty Projectors, it's kind of like The Talking Heads and it's kind of like nothing else you've heard before. So how about we all get a little weird with Brooklyn-based Ava Luna at Club Congress, located at 311 E. Congress St., on Monday, May 11.
Kicking off the $5 show are Wight Lhite and Forrest Fallows, who will each present the darker, more moody and blissed out, sun-drenched sides of psych respectively. The concert starts at 7 p.m. and it is an all ages event.
