You’d be hard pressed to find a more stylistically diverse show this week than the one happening Friday at Flicker. Local legend Lynda Stipe, of Oh-OK fame, fronts the on-again/off-again local group Flash to Bang Time, a band that sorta, kinda shadows Stipe’s post-pop past but also flirts lustily with expansive Eastern psychedelia and straight-ahead highway-rock. Upstart intelli-pop crew Brothers, led by inscrutable songwriter Ryan Gray Moore, will perform, as will Revien, a local instrumental trio that has somehow managed to fly largely under the radar for its couple years of existence. The band, which features members of the Georgia Guitar Quartet, Maps and Transit and The Odd Trio, explores everything from classical to jazz to popular music but pulls it all together with a playful virtuosity.
