Wednesday music picks: FKA Twigs, Slaid Cleaves and Hayes Carll
FKA Twigs at Emo’s. This is the first headlining US tour for the abstract R&B singer whose debut full-length “LP1” is one of this year’s most captivating releases. Breathy sighs morph into clear toned melodies in an electronic echo chamber filled with uneasy atmospherics and aching, unrequited desire. A couple weeks back, Twigs, who started her career in music as a dancer and incorporates elements of performance art into her shows, put in a visually stunning “Tonight Show” appearance that awed host Jimmy Fallon. This show was moved from the Parish because of demand. $20. 8 p.m. doors. 2015 E. Riverside Drive. c3concerts.com. — D.S.S.
