The riveting, super-charged performances of rock instrumentalist Angel Vivaldi are unusual in that the mesmerizing rock guitarist’s popular stage shows — like live soundtracks of awesome movies the composer-guitarist is seeing only in his head — feature no vocals or lyrics, just soaring melodies and scorching riffs that showcase Vivaldi’s powerhouse electric guitar mastery. His albums — from the 2011 breakthrough EP “Universal Language” to the recently released “Synapse” — have won him scores of fans and critical acclaim. Find out why at the Phoenix Theater, 201 Washington St. 7 p.m. $15-$18. ThePhoenixTheater.com.
