Joan of Arc

9 p.m. Wednesday, November 3. The Firebird, 2706 Olive Street.

Cap'n Jazz broke up in 1995 and splintered into influential groups such as the Promise Ring, American Football and the prolific Joan Of Arc. The longest-running Cap'n Jazz spinoff, Joan Of Arc utilizes a revolving cast of musicians to explore the abstract recesses of singer/guitarist Tim Kinsella's psyche. The 2009 Polyvinyl release Flowers is a fitting beginner's guide to the oft-segmented project. The album wanders between lucid-dream instrumentals and would-be rock tunes. Standout ballads "The Sun Rose" and "Explain Yourselves #2" are at once vulnerable, tragic and gorgeous; these transcendent moments bring cohesion between Joan Of Arc and its extended emo family.
