Concert photos: Califone (with William Tyler) at Off Broadway, Sunday, January 26

Califone, an experimental rock band from Chicago, took to the stage at Off Broadway on Sunday, following an opening set by singer-songwriter William Tyler from Nashville.

You could have heard a pin drop as the audience hung on every note, scratch, buzz and tweak that Califone's beautifully hypnotic music produced.

From the exaggerated slides of the many guitars used by front-man Tim Rutili, to the numerous odd sounds coming from percussionist Ben Massarella, every note had a purpose. It all came together like a tiny symphony.  Songs like "Trout Silk," "Funeral Singers" and "Lion & Bee" all had a haunting, delicate forcefulness that left you hypnotized and captivated.

William Tyler, who is currently on tour with the band, joined in for a few songs, adding another fluid dimension to the mix with his soft guitar style and harmonies.
