Saft’s work always rings with intentions: From the reggae riddims of his New Zion Trio to the roar of Spanish Donkey’s skronkprov, the keyboardist makes you feel his focus, and therefore his art. This six-night run is all about variety. He’s coaxed drummer Jerry Granelli to town for duets, has Bad Brains’ H.R. rocking with the NZT, and introduces Slobber Pup, a frenzied outfit with Joe Morris. Perhaps most intriguing will be his electric solo set, which he’ll be playing under the name Burning Genitals.
