Matthew E. White With Wilsen Something of a renaissance man, Matthew E. White took a circuitous route to his current rock club residencies following the release of his second solo album, Fresh Blood. A few years ago the Richmond native was leading, writing and arranging material for a nine-piece experimental jazz band called Fight the Big Bull (also with ties to Justin Vernon's Eau Claire crew). Also trying to establish a full-service production facility (Spacebomb), White recorded demo tracks that unexpectedly became the core of his acclaimed solo debut, Big Inner, a surprising blend of vintage soul, gospel, pop and odd tendrils from New Orleans to Jamaica and Brazil. Blood is more definitively grounded in Memphis and Muscle Shoals soul, but its roots run far and wide while White's nimble string and horn arrangements are sublime. His soul-infused vocals are often whispery but still have a real presence, caressing literate lyrics about love, sexual abuse, suicide, and music itself in the infectious lead single "Rock & Roll Is Cold"--a blatant lie if White has anything to do with it. Opening is Wilsen, an atmospheric chamber folk band fronted by English singer Tamsin Wilson. 7:30 p.m., $10. -- Rick Mason 7th St. Entry
