The Sea and Cake
Tonight @ Turner Hall Ballroom, 8 p.m.
Formed at a time when turning down the volume and playing softly was considered a radical statement in indie-rock, the Chicago jazz-tinged post-rock band The Sea and Cake has been putting out pleasantly intricate little records since 1994. The band's ninth and latest album, The Moonlight Butterfly, is marked by typically precise guitar interplay and long instrumental stretches.
