THOM YORKE at Kings Theater (Nov. 26-27, 8 p.m.). Perhaps only Radiohead’s frontman could swing two nights of experimental electronic music at this massive theater in Flatbush, Brooklyn, but at least it’s a more intimate space than the seminal British alt-rock band’s usual arenas. He’ll be joined by Nigel Godrich, a Radiohead producer and Yorke’s Atoms for Peace bandmate, as well as the audiovisual artist Tarik Barri. Yorke is currently working on a solo album with Godrich, which is due out next year, so at these dates he might preview new music or perform selections from his first feature-length soundtrack for the 2018 horror film “Suspiria.”
MARY HALVORSON AND JOE MORRIS at the Jazz Gallery (Nov. 28, 7:30 and 9:30 p.m.). Halvorson and Morris are two guitarists whose sound you can recognize immediately. Both give off the feeling that their instrument is a rough and dangerous thing, a kind of electric reactor, though they play quite differently: Halvorson in a corkscrewing tangle, Morris in sharply percussive flecks and bites. This show marks the release of their new album, “Traversing Orbits,” on the Rogue Art label (it’s available only on CD).
ANGELICA SANCHEZ at the Stone (Nov. 27-Dec. 1, 8:30 p.m.). Sanchez’s aggressiveness as an improviser and an experimentalist is matched by the sensitivity and composure of her touch at the piano. She is in residence this coming week at the Stone, where she performs in a different scenario each night. On Tuesday and Wednesday she appears in two different trios: Sam Newsome on saxophone and Andrew Cyrille on drums the first night; Andrew Bishop on saxophone and Tom Rainey on drums the second. On Thursday she pairs up with the drummer Pheeroan Aklaff. She’s with the guitarist Omar Tamez and the drummer Ramon Lopez on Nov. 30, then she leads a 17-person big band to close out the run on Dec. 1.
SARA SERPA at National Sawdust (Nov. 28, 7 p.m.). A singer whose coolly drifting vocals never quite feel disembodied or out of reach, Serpa has recently been working more directly with political and historical topics. Here she debuts “Intimate Strangers,” a project undertaken with the Nigerian writer Emmanuel Iduma. The piece uses a combination of musical abstraction and lyrical content to interrogate themes of migration, displacement, citizenship and belonging. Iduma and Serpa, who hails from Portugal, will appear here with two other vocalists, Sofía Rei and Aubrey Johnson, as well as Matt Mitchell on piano and Qasim Naqvi on the modular synthesizer.
