If the seminal experimental/avant-garde man-of-all-abilities John Zorn says he wants to put out your band's record, chances run high that you're doing something noteworthy. Kayo Dot's debut album came out on Zorn's Tzadik Records in 2003 and ever since they've been heading strong. They hold back no offerings—their Bandcamp page is ripe with 15 listenable releases, which document the majority of Toby Driver & Co.'s work since the beginning of the millenium. The intimate seating arrangement at the Back Door Theater (tucked behind Common Ground Coffee House) argues strongly against the existence of a more appropriate venue, for it's best to remain still while this group displaces you with their haunting, jagged compositions.
