Also playing: Chillwave poster child Chaz Bundick (a.k.a. Toro Y Moi) crafted the sounds of last summer with his 2010 debut, Causers Of This. Bundick set the tone not just for a season, but also for a throng of his contemporaries (including Washed Out, Memory Tapes, and Ariel Pink). The South Carolina native continued his prolific output of side projects this winter with the release of his follow-up album, Underneath The Pine, which marked a departure from his earlier work. But fans were pleasantly surprised by the complex and lush recording, which challenged any assumptions Toro Y Moi might have been saddled with. Toro Y Moi performs with Unknown Mortal Orchestra and Coma Cinema at 8 p.m. at First Unitarian Church at 8 p.m.; tickets to the all-ages show are $14. —Kiley Bense
