Far afield: Folk singer-songwriter Damien Jurado began his solo career in 1995, self-releasing cassettes and performing intimate acoustic shows around his hometown of Seattle. Aptly described as experimental, Jurado’s work includes forays into found and field recordings—in 2000 he released a collection of fragments that he had found from sources such as thrift store tape players and answering machines—while his indie-rock efforts center around lyrically powerful, dark musings that veer from alien life and human death to loves gained and lost. Wes Swing and Corrina Repp also perform.

Monday 6/24. $15, 7pm. Woolen Mills Chapel, 1819 E. Market St.
