Owen Pallett, Foxes in Fiction 

When: Thu., Sept. 4, 9 p.m. 2014
Price: $20, $18 in advance
Canadian songwriter Owen Pallett can devastate a festival crowd with just a violin and a string of loop pedals, but he’s done plenty more than that in 2014. He attended the Oscars, having been nominated for his work with Will Butler of Arcade Fire on the score to Spike Jonze’s Her; he put out his second solo album, In Conflict (Domino/Secret City); and he arranged the strings on the forthcoming second full-length by Foxes in Fiction, the recording project of 24-year-old New York-based songwriter Warren Hildebrand. That album, called Ontario Gothic, comes out via Orchid Tapes on September 23, and its name nods to the Canadian province where Hildebrand and Pallett grew up; they became friends and collaborators while living in Toronto. Pallett’s arrangements streak its seven songs of gentle dream pop with a sort of high drama unheard on Foxes in Fiction’s more ambient debut, Swung From the Branches. He’ll headline this show, playing cuts from his emotionally bare new album, but before that he’ll join Foxes in Fiction on violin. —Sasha Geffen
