Your mission, should you choose to accept it: Attend the Consider the Source performance at 9 p.m. Saturday in Waiting Room (334 Delaware Ave.). Digest, if you dare, the dazzling and dynamic musical interplay, the interstellar majesty of the syncopated funk, and the potentially life-altering yearning informing the musical themes. Watch and listen in amazement as guitarist Gabriel Marin, bassist John Ferrara and drummer Jeff Mann bring Middle Eastern modalities to bear on Western funk, prog-rock and fusion motifs. Allow a broad smile to take up residence upon your face.
