Gary Wilson & The Blind Dates

In short, Gary Wilson is strange and sincere. A life-long musician of multiple instruments, student of John Cage, home recording prodigy and performance artist, Wilson has experienced a career almost as peculiar as his romantically charged electronic lounge jams and as unpredictable as his mock teen idol shows — performances that include throwing sacks of flour, splashing paint, duct-taping a mannequin to his back or covering himself with a bed sheet and crying — all of which is just part of what he describes as “Gary Wilson Music.” You couldn’t call it anything else with much conviction. Although, it’s fair to say his particular brand of outsider pop music has influenced an impressive lineup of artists from the highly evident Ariel Pink to more surprising musicians like Earl Sweatshirt of rap collective Odd Future. $8-$10, 8:30pm Fri, K23 Gallery, 702 Fredericksburg Road, (210) 776-5635, facebook.com/k23gallery. — Denise De Glopper
