Elf Power Tonight at VAC 

Elf Power has been crafting psych pop/indie folk since Devendra Banhart was in middle school. The Athens, Ga., act formed in 1994 and is comprised of Andrew Rieger (vocals, guitar), Jimmy Hughes (guitar), Derek Almstead (bass), Laura Carter (keyboards) and Eric Harris (drums). The fivesome is also part of the Elephant 6 Collective, a defunct record label and group of buddies, which includes Neutral Milk Hotel, Of Montreal, The Apples in Stereo, The Olivia Tremor Control and Beulah.

With 10 full-length albums under their belt--including everything from 1997's fantasy concept album When the Red King Comes to 2004's Walking with the Beggar Boys--Elf Power has remained a powerful, if under-the-radar, indie force.

On the current tour, which includes a stop at Visual Arts Collective on Thursday, Oct. 28, Elf Power will also feature a screening of their short film Major Organ and the Adding Machine. The film is a companion piece to their latest self-titled album and includes cameos by a number of Elephant 6 notables.

    Alive After Five: Afrosonics, Aug. 31

    To call their sound “world music” is literally accurate—led by Dayo “Ariwo” Ayodele, of Nigeria, band members hail from as far as Congo Brazzaville and Surinam, and as near as California and Boise—but the label doesn’t quite do them justice.
