Guitarist-composer Marc Ribot is an inspired polymath whose bravely speckled pursuits, over a three-decade career, span just about everything from avant-jazz and no-wave punk noise to power-trio post-rock and Cuban dance sounds. And that’s not even mentioning his pop-shifting session work with the likes of Tom Waits, Robert Plant, Elvis Costello and others. Tonight’s program is a two-parter, the first half of which is a solo set based on Ribot’s 2010 album, Silent Movies, featuring original solo works and scores created for imaginary films. The second half is a big blowout with Los Cubanos Postizos, New York City’s “ultimate party band,” whose two critically hailed albums in collaboration with Ribot celebrate blazing Cuban son montuno.
