Americana, Folk, Country and Rockabilly all exist in a hazy shared space, and the border between Punk, Post Punk, Post Hardcore and Indie Rock can grow thin to nonexistent as bands trade stylistic calling cards. 

Kristian Dunn’s interpretation of his own output in El Ten Eleven offers more evidence of that fluidity. By broader definition, the rich, circuitous instrumentals he constructs with drummer Tim Fogarty would fall under genre umbrellas like Post Rock, Math Rock or the ever-reliably vague Experimental Rock. 

Dunn, however, has his own ideas. “People don’t think of us this way, but we’re kind of a Pop band, really."

El Ten Eleven plays 8:30 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 4 with Eliot Lipp at Southgate House Revival. $12. southgatehouse.com.
