Avant-guitar legend Adrian Belew plays solo at Club Café this Friday

On one of guitarist Adrian Belew's more recent visits to Pittsburgh, City Paper contributor Chris Parker interviewed Belew and wrote a career-spanning profile on him. Belew's work -- both on his own in numerous guises and with the likes of David Bowie, Talking Heads and King Crimson -- has long blended pop and experimental elements. "But more and more I give up on pop music because it seems like a losing battle and there's just no place anymore for interesting pop music," Belew told Parker.

Belew plays an early show at Club Café this Friday, in a one-man electric show described as "painting with guitar." He kind of explains what this means on his blog -- I'm still a bit mystified -- but if anyone's latest venture deserves a vote of confidence, it's this innovative, good-natured guitar whiz.
