Welcome home, Peter Broderick! The globetrotting composer and multi-instrumentalist is an Oregonian through and through. Raised in Carlton, Broderick's played with Horse Feathers, Laura Gibson, M. Ward, Norfolk and Western, and countless other Portland acts. Broderick moved to Europe to join the band Efterklang a few years back. Since then, he's continued his staggeringly prolific solo career, releasing stunning album after album and cutting a broad stylistic swath through folk, classical, pop, avant-garde, instrumental and ambient musics, and beyond. In short, he's one of the most musical people on the planet, and Portland was lucky to have him when we did—and now, that bit of luck has flown back to the nest. Broderick quietly returned to his old stomping grounds over the summer, and tonight he performs a homecoming gig with German pianist/composer Hauschka. For those willing to spring for the slightly pricey ticket, it will be a night of adventurous, unconventional, flat-out gorgeous music that defies easy categorization. NED LANNAMANN
