Julian Koster, arguably the most indispensable member of the Elephant 6 Collective, is no stranger to theatrical live performances. His primary project, the Music Tapes, has had him duet with a talking television, for Pete’s sake. But the band’s latest tour, dubbed the Traveling Imaginary, promises to suck us even further into the whimsical via a handmade circus tent funded by Kickstarter donations. The tent, which will house both band and audience, fulfills a long-held dream of Koster’s to have a space where music, stories, games and other media can mingle to create a one-of-a-kind concert experience. The First Unitarian Church has booked two shows for the same night partly due to popular demand and partly because tent capacity is pretty limited.
Mon., Feb. 4, 7:30 and 10:15 p.m., $15, First Unitarian Church, 2125 Chestnut St., 215-821-7575, r5productions.com.
