Julianna Barwick was originally scheduled to perform in Cincinnati at the MidPoint Music Festival later this month, but after a call to tour with some new friends from Iceland, she chose to drop off the fest. 

Barwick now comes to town for a show opening for the like-minded Icelandic crew Sigur Rós. Barwick’s haunting, experimental sound shares a similar headspace with the Ambient Rock masters; the Brooklyn, N.Y.-based Barwick’s latest album, Nepenthe, was recorded in Iceland with Sigur Rós collaborator Alex Somers and was released in August to widespread praise. 

7:30 p.m. $46-$56. Riverbend Music Center’s PNC Pavilion, 6295 Kellogg Ave., California, riverbend.org.
