Orchestral Maneuvers in the Dark

Synth-pop is a hard genre to grasp; even when a band seems to have utterly disappeared from the public consciousness, there’s a cult of hardcore fans out there, patiently waiting for said band to rise again. So it goes with Orchestral Maneuvers in the Dark (or, more familiarly, OMD), who haven’t toured in nearly two decades nor recorded an album in 14 years, but still found a rabid response when they released a new album in 2010, History of Modern, quickly selling more than 100,000 copies and selling out a European tour. Now they’re coming stateside to see if old hits like “Enola Gay,” “So in Love” and, of course, their Pretty in Pink monster “If You Leave” still strike a chord. I’m guessing they do, especially in Utah where fellow synth-reliant tunesmiths like Erasure and Howard Jones still draw a crowd. The Depot, 400 W. South Temple, 9 p.m., $20 advance/$25 day of show
