E-Rock Experiments 

Richard Pinhas Trio at 21 Grand.

Richard Pinhas is an internationally acclaimed figure in experimental music, credited with leading Heldon, one of the first bands to mix electronic and rock music. The band, based in Pinhas' native France, recorded seven albums over just five years before disbanding in 1978. Although the group's influence was already well established, he proceeded to an on-again, off-again solo career that persists to this day, including last year's double-disc Metatron. Now 56, Pinhas is considered a cult hero in France and an esteemed pioneer among his scattered musical offspring. Yet he's never toured the West Coast before now. The Richard Pinhas Trio makes its debut Bay Area appearance at 21 Grand on Friday, June 29, with support from the Barry Cleveland Group. 8:30 p.m., $6-$10. 21Grand.org
