For many years, the Capstan Shafts were best known for two things -- an alarmingly prolific output of lo-fi indie rock gems and an air of mystery. Each year brings a new album or two, packed with 15 to 20 two-minute songs overflowing with inscrutable lyrics and meaty hooks. The extremely rare live performances often were just mastermind Dean Wells playing on his own. But now he's wrangled a band, adopted the D.C. area as a temporary home and is ready to bring his songs to the stage. Fans of Guided By Voices would do well to check out Wednesday's show at the Red & the Black.
