Clue To Kalo 

9 p.m. Wednesday, April 2. The Bluebird, 2706 Olive Street

Clue to Kalo's music should be the soundtrack to a spiritual retreat for the information age: His network of salty strings, sustained harpsichords and tender tambourines is ideally suited for digital decompression. See, Clue to Kalo (née Mark Mitchell) isn't indulging instruments in any old meditation mosque. Nope, the Australian solo artist is layering grassy whispers, ambient airs and chamomile melodies virtual-style on his home computer — composing an almost literal interpretation of folktronica (like synths meeting George Harrison, or blips finding Badly Drawn Boy). Though he does have the occasional guest instrument-player (or two) at his live shows, his computer still bows center stage as the ultimate zen-strument that can both downloadeth and system faileth away.
