Guitarist Chris Forsyth constructs massive anthemic rock jams that prompt comparison to the masters of his genre. In 2014, Forsyth’s The Solar Motel Band released Intensity Ghost, bringing new accolades and critical praise including this from NPR’s Lars Gotrich: “With the Solar Motel Band he seeks the endless jam at the intersection of television and the Grateful Dead. Or at least that’s where it begins.”

Friday 1/9. $7, 8:30pm. Twisted Branch Tea Bazaar, 414 E. Main St., Downtown Mall. 293-9947.
