The point is not to understand what any of it means – the band name, the album art, why exactly a Ukrainian jazz bassist is playing indie rock in San Francisco – but to appreciate the music for what it is. That itself is not always easy to grasp, but could well be the only post-modern art-rock with country, Balkan, and Dada influences you’ll hear all year.
At the Rickshaw Stop (155 Fell St., San Francisco) on Mar. 12. 8 p.m., $10
