Jib Kidder

Georgia-raised, New York-based experimentalist Sean Schuster-Craig draws from influences ranging from Arthur Russell to Animal Collective to T. Rex to dirty-South hip hop to create the boundary-blurring music he makes as Jib Kidder. February’s Teaspoon to the Ocean, the prolific Schuster-Craig’s first album for the Weird World label, is a somewhat polished version of the Kidder sound, which is visionary and uncategorizable even as it displays a reverence for the pop canon. Thursday’s 40 Watt bill is stacked to the rafters, with locals Cult of Riggonia, The Dream Scene, Realistic Pillow, Black Paradise, Strictli Rickli and Gary Eddy also set to perform.
