Little Tybee, the usually six-piece strings, keys, and percussion ensemble out of Atlanta, is something different from your usual folk rock or alt rock band. The group’s music is rhythmically experimental, smartly orchestrated, and cleverly composed (credit vocalist-keyboardist Brock Scott). Viola and violin blend with electric eight-string guitar and voice. The beats can be languid, aggressive, or globally influenced in a way you can’t quite put your finger on. Little Tybee’s 2011 video collaboration with puppeteer Tom Haney, Boxcar Fair, is the strangest, most engaging bit of music and theater you’ll see and hear in some time. L.T.’s music, immensely pleasant on the band’s 2009 debut, Building a Bomb, is bit edgy, sometimes strange, and often unpredictable. Little Tybee plays at 8 p.m. on Monday, July 7, in the intimate and acoustically friendly Gig Performance Space (1808 Second St.). Tickets are $20 at the door. Visit www.gigsantafe.com.
