The resume of cellist and singer Melora Creager is quite extensive: backup for Nirvana, Goo Goo Dolls and, most recently, Fountains of Wayne and the Sounds. But Creager's main gig has been with Rasputina, the New York-based, Victorian era-obsessed, gothic/classical band she founded in 1991. (The band bio states it was 1891. No matter, their music could come from either century.) Originally a trio of female cellists, the group now consists of Creager, cellist Zoe Keating and drummer Jonathon TeBeest, the first male member. With softly brushed drums, gliding strings and Creager's PJ Harvey-ish voice, their latest effort, A Radical Recital, is both beautiful and haunting. Catch the recital live today after Unwoman opens at 9:30 p.m.
