Pick: Xiu Xiu

May 21
Xiu Xiu w/ Dirty Beaches
Waiting Room Lounge, 6212 Maple St.
9 p.m., $10 in advance/$12 day-of-show, onepercentproductions.com

Jamie Stewart continually bends, shapes and reforms Xiu Xiu at his in-the-moment stylistic whims, always keeping a foot in his experimental indie rock wheelhouse, but always seeming on the brink of letting his running-wild ideas run completely away. That makes each of his records an intriguing puzzle. Polyrhythmic textures, computer programming and scattered synth sounds are often featured in Xiu Xiu's work, though like the band's membership, none of those elements are constant. Opener Dirty Beaches have attracted their own following, culling from '50s rock, shoegaze and synth-punk pioneers Suicide.
