Solo artist James Friley’s compositions are a modern tribute to the art rock of the ’60s and ’70s. Performing under the name Idiot Glee, Friley melds his spacecraft pop by blending the influences of electronic pioneers Brian Eno, John Cale and Brian Wilson (among others) with classically trained keyboard chops, rock god guitar work and contemplative lyrics that frequently expand into a trance-like mantra. Murals, Ming Ming and Cream Dream open.

Tuesday 3/22. $5, 8pm. Henley Auction House, Ix Art Park, 937 Second St. SE, 442-4273.
