On its menu, the Taco Bell restaurant chain offers a Waffle Taco, which sounds either amazing or awful, depending on your openness to the idea of a standard waffle gently folded around some combination of sausage, bacon, scrambled eggs, cheese, and "sweet syrup." For the sake of this brief, let's say the Waffle Taco is an unusual idea that actually works very well, because that's a fair description, too, of the Portland band Waffle Taco, which plays Velo Cult tonight. This Waffle Taco is a duo—singer/multi-instrumentalist Ben Beauvais plus trumpeter/electronic musician Kyle Linneman—and together, the two men create quiet, exploratory electro-jazz that wanders but never quite gets lost. They remind me of mighty English space-jazz combo the Greg Foat Group, but even more untethered to the real world. Waffle Taco: It's weird, but it works. BEN SALMON
