Guitar virtuoso William Tyler has done stints with the brilliant revivalists Lambchop and indie rock’s Silver Jews, but his solo releases echo John Fahey’s meticulously picked lines and darkly surreal compositional sensibility. His intimate show at The Oak and the Ax (140 Main St., Biddeford) is guaranteed to blow every mind in the room. It starts at 8 p.m. and local world musician Tom K opens the show. Tix: $8 (all ages). theoakandtheax.com.
