Ridgewood, New Jersey, native Julian Lynch got his start crafting lo-fi tunes with the likes of Real Estate and Ducktails before embarking on his own four-track quest while getting his Ph.D. in ethnomusicology at the University of Wisconsin. The result of his solo offerings is bedroom pop magic: His latest, and best, solo work is 2013’s Lines, an all-encompassing, dreamy haze of an album that showcases Lynch’s scholarly musical knowledge and knack for exploratory pop. Live, the music takes on an enveloping, transcendent power — expect to walk away in a lo-fi daze. Weyes Blood, Open Tower, Cassie Ramone, and Jacob Gorchov (DJ set) open the show, which is open to everyone 18 and older.
