Califone/William Tyler

Tonight is Califone’s first Cleveland show in four years, lending an air of the “special” to the gig. The band’s latest album, Stitches, dropped last year to widespread and fairly underground praise. Califone has never been one to claim the mainstream spotlight, though their music is more than worthy. But even as the Americana genre crests toward unprecedented popularity, Califone’s left-of-center approach still manages to keep the masses at bay. They are, in a phrase, a secret treasure of the indie scene. (Uninitiated fans might recognize singer Tom Rutili from the 2004 Ugly Casanova recordings with Modest Mouse’s Isaac Brock.) Tune into the title track from their last album to gather a sense of the band’s sparse use of acoustic strings and melodic odds and ends.The band’s debut, Roomsound, meanwhile, still holds up as a spellbinding indie album. Both their first and most recent studio outings are terrific entry points to the Califone world. (Eric Sandy)
