Though it’s the dead of winter, guitarist Chris Forsyth and the Solar Motel Band ought to leave Café Bourbon Street feeling like a sun-scorched desert wasteland.

On last year’s Solar Motel, the musician, whose playing style suggests Television’s Tom Verlaine recast as a desert ambler, constructed a four-part, psych-rock symphony that could double as an alternate soundtrack to that time Homer Simpson ate a Guatemalan Insanity Pepper and spent an evening hallucinating about pyramids and talking coyotes.

Mosses & the Ipps open the show.
