CBGB, 315 Bowery, at Bleecker Street, East Village, (212)982-4052.

Christian Gibbs, who played lead guitar for Modern English and Foetus before starting his own bands, never settles down. As his lyrics detail surreal and troubled visions, with titles like "Oversized Pin Cushion" and "Superficial Flesh Wound," the music wanders amid countryish rock, cracked cabaret oompah and elaborate, Beatles-flavored ballads. Walter Salas-Humara, the leader of the Silos, learned a lot from Bob Dylan, the Band and the Velvet Underground. The Silos brought a stately touch of country to their New York rock in the 1980's and have grown noisier since then. Tonight at 8, sharing the bill with the Gingersol and the Apollo Sunshine: admission is $10 (Pareles)
