Sat., Dec. 29, The LURK
G Street Wunderbar, 10 p.m., no cover
I never knew there was a cozy place where crazy, anti-folk minimalism and psychedelic garage rock overlapped. This was before I heard the LURK, who has apparently built his home there. The LURK is only one guy. I don't even know his real name. Maybe “The Lurk” is his real name. Clearly, the LURK plays by his own rules. Unlike most musicians who need other people to spark creativity and get that special magic going, the LURK just bounces weird ideas off of himself. His rendition of David Byrne's “Home,” for instance, has an awkward swagger that is at once charming and unsettling. 228 G Street in Davis, www.facebook.com/thelurk1manband.
