Gary Dacanay/Vagrant Revival/Rebecca Marie Miller/Marvin and the Cloud Wall

When: Fri., Oct. 5, 8 p.m. 2012

“Marvin” is the antiquated drum machine that lap slide guitarist Joe Novelli uses when he performs on stage, so you can think of the quirky Marvin and the Cloud Wall as a duo rather than a solo act, even though Novelli doesn’t actually have any living and breathing bandmates. Novelli mixes garage rock and blues on two EPs and has just issued Live at Autumn Ridge, which he recorded at Autumn Ridge Farm, a venue near his New York home. It’s an eclectic album that even includes an experimental noise version of Chuck Berry’s “Johnny B. Goode.” (Nikki Hunt)
