The Odditorium scores one of the most unique lineups this week, with prog-punk visionaries Circle Takes the Square sharing a bill with spoken-word/hip-hop artist B. Dolan. The pairing is called the "cross pollination tour" and "will see Dolan backed by a new live ensemble, formed for the production of his upcoming 2014 LP." Having recently made a comeback, CTTS, based out of Savannah, Ga., is also exploring musical freedom. The group's 2012 sophomore album was eight years in the making but showcased "epic, pagan visions ... twisted into abstractly complex musical forms." The group launches its tour in Asheville on Sunday, Nov. 3, with Brainworms, Systems and King Dirt. 8 p.m., $10/$12. ashevilleodditorium.com.
