Smart Bets: Circle Takes the Square and B. Dolan

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.
