Jazz, Lounge, & Cabaret

Nels Cline

When: Jan. 23-26, 9 p.m. 2013

Guitarist Nels Cline does it all: rock 'n' roll as a member of Wilco, country with Willie Nelson, punk with bassist Mike Watt, arty noise with Thurston Moore of Sonic Youth, and improvisational free jazz with The Nels Cline Singers. That said, his four-night residency at new restaurant/venue Duende (468 19th St., Oakland) will likely get weird. Despite its name, there are no vocalists in the instrumental trio The Nels Cline Singers, which features Cline on guitar, Trevor Dunn on bass, and Scott Amendola on drums. The three compose their music onstage, drawing from progressive rock, experimental jazz, and even pop. The Nels Cline Singers will play a set, and then will be joined by a different guest each night in the second set. Wednesday-Saturday, Jan. 23-26. 9 p.m., $25. DuendeOakland.com
