There’s no metaphor or comparison that can illuminate the splendor of Kishi Bashi’s music. It’s beautiful and there’s no better way to describe it. Brandishing his violin, the Norfolk-based musician creates lush melodies that are soft and dream-like, accentuated by Asian undertones and complemented by upbeat electric riffs, melancholy bass chords and thoughtful lyrics. His live performances are not just to be heard, but experienced, compounded by a sense of peace and a soaring emotional trip.

Friday 8/15. $15, 7pm. The Jefferson Theatre, 110 E. Main St. 245-4980.
