Eight Gigs: Damien Jurado

Sat., Oct. 22, 9 p.m., Sophia’s Thai Kitchen, $15-$20

Visions of Us on the Land is the 12th album by Seattle indie-folk singer-songwriter Damien Jurado. It’s also the third installment of a trilogy that explores a character’s journey to disappear from society “in order to discover universal truths,” according to the album’s press release. That may sound like a vague description of every single indie-folk album ever written, but make no mistake about it, this is a massively detailed project. It zeros in on a single character through the scope of three albums, accented with dreamy sci-fi imagery and a flair for psychedelic instrumentation. 129 E Street, Suite E, in Davis; www.damienjurado.com.
