INSTRUMENTAL | Kaki King

Rolling Stone has dubbed Kaki King a "genre unto herself"; the Brooklyn-based composer and guitarist definitely feels like an iconoclast in her avant-garde approach. While performing her most recent album, "The Neck Is a Bridge to the Body," King shows her affinity for the visual experience by conjuring a Bjork-esque creative force. Picture her guitar a-glow with a colorful projection showing the sound waves and resonance of what she strums. Kaki King's non-lyrical creations seem uninterested in saying anything explicit, with a jazzy, percussive playing style that's enjoyably unpredictable. This is the kickoff show to The Little Concert Series, which is presented by Different Radio.

Kaki King performs Thursday, February 25, at The Little Theatre, 240 East Avenue. 8 p.m. $20. thelittle.org; kakiking.com.
