On Sunday night, multi-instrumentalist artista Merrill Garbus (better known to most folks as tUnE-yArDs) came to town for a headlining show at One Eyed Jacks. The unusual nature of Garbus’ anti-status quo approach to constructing pop music is alluring and the growing buzz surrounding her live show is littered with attempts to describe the artist’s hard-to-pin-down musical/performance style – “polyrhythmic,” “textured,” “vibrant,” and “meticulous” are words you’ll see in most reviews – one word you don’t see: “ordinary.”
