Nada Surf

For a little rock band that busted into the %u2028modern-rock scene with a clever, quick tune about the melodrama and teen angst of high school—“Popular” from their debut High/Low—they’ve come a long way. That song, their most widely popular, is far from their best after six studio albums; their latest release, The Stars Are Indifferent To Astronomy, tackles%u2028more mature subject matter—namely, the passing of time. Singer/guitarist Matthew Caws laments on “Looking Through”: “Every birthday candle/ that ever got blown out/ is one more year/ of someone trying/ to figure it all out.” The theme works, as does the divergence in recording: Rather than trying to capture a studio album in the studio, they tried to re-create a concert in the studio. The end result is filled with rollicking energy and no restraints—just like their live show. An Horse opens the show. The Urban Lounge, 241 S. 500 East, 9 p.m., $18 in advance, $20 day of show
