After studying economics and graduating from Brown University in 2000, Diego Garcia discarded his degree and turned to music. In his first venture he helped form and became the front man of the indie rock band Elefant. After Elefant announced their break up via MySpace in 2010, Garcia embarked on his own solo career. The Argentine-American who was raised in Florida released his first solo album, Laura, in 2010. His latest album, Paradise, was released last month and fuses Latin influences with those of more mainstream American music, such as Leonard Cohen and David Bowie. Opening for Garcia will be folk-rocker and upstate New York native Ashley Sofia. (Nov. 15, 8 PM, $15, 339 Central Ave., Albany, 465-5233)
