Martin Dosh is a man on a mission. He interweaves acoustic instrumentation (violin, guitar, winds) with sounds generated or altered by electronic media. Instead of going deeper into sample-land on his latest album, Tommy ups the ante by including more drums (real ones!) and singing. (On the previous Dosh album, Wolves and Wishes, Bonnie “Prince” Billy lent his voice.) Unlike some electronica product, Tommy has the melodies and spunk to keep clear of ambient bliss-out land — it’s chill-out music that’s involving and engaging. By artfully combining aspects of classical, rock (pop and progressive), minimalism and electronics, Dosh is often in a genre all by himself. He performs at 9 p.m. at the Beachland Ballroom (15711 Waterloo Rd., 216.383.1124). White Hinterland and Sleeps open. Tickets: $10. — Mark Keresman
