Want a recipe for experimental, space-age piano rock? Start with a graduate of the Berklee School of Music, stir in masterful key playing that sounds like anything but piano, add a dash of sonic loop-de-loops, and finish with vocals whispered from beyond the ether. The tasty result is Marco Benevento’s music. Known for his original compositions, as well as reinterpretations of artists from Leonard Cohen to Pink Floyd, Benevento’s music is characterized by a polymorphous piano that garbles, buzzes, dances, glides, and plinks along in every song.

Wednesday 11/7 $12-15, 9pm. The Southern Café and Music Hall, 103 S. First St. 977-5590.
