There he was, all the way across the club but with a presence larger than the Chrysler Building. Flailing like a balloon quickly inflated and popped, over and over. Howling, strutting, hyperextending his vertebrae as if continually struck by lightning. He was Jamie Lidell, the opening act I’d never heard of, and he completely blew my goddamned mind with his live, all-vocal loops and frenzied showmanship. That was five years ago, and Lidell’s white-guy soul chops have only amplified since. With an in-the-pocket live band including analog synthesizers and bongos, and a ferociously danceable new album, Compass, Lidell is poised to totally blow away a dance floor full of sweaty Petalumans on Saturday, Oct. 2, at the Mystic Theatre. 21 N. Petaluma Blvd., Petaluma. 9pm. $20. 707.762.3565.
