Gary Numan at Metro Music Hall, Grocer at Kilby Court, Princess Goes to the Butterfly Museum at Metro Music Hall, and more.
Gary Numan at Metro Music Hall Anyone with a passing interest in this show is keenly aware that Gary Numan's got a deep and varied catalog, dating back to his two pre-solo albums with Tubeway Army. That band released "Down in the Park," a stone-cold new wave-era classic in 1979, the same year that saw Numan's solo debut The Pleasure Principle, which spawned another chestnut of that era, "Cars."

MUSIC PICKS: MAR 17 - 23

The Circle Jerks @ The Grand at The Complex Much to the (mild) shock and (slight) dismay of a certain demographic of fans, the key albums of youth are hitting some big-number anniversaries. Some of punk rock's elder statesmen are finding their album anniversary numbers crawling up and into the 40s.

MUSIC PICKS: MAR 10 - 16

Sumac at DLC @ Quarters Arcade Bar, Leif Vollebekk @ Urban Lounge, Pixie and the Partygrass Boys @ Commonwealth Room, and more.
Sumac at DLC @ Quarters Arcade Bar A quick personal aside: When I first saw the band Swans in a live concert setting, I was prepared for the fact that the group was playing a six-song, two-hour set, and that the veteran band had a well-earned reputation for being amongst the loudest in the world. None of that prepared me for the actual event, which found me crying against a back wall before a single track's conclusion, completely losing-and-then-finding every emotion possible when faced with their pure storm of volume.

MUSIC PICKS: MAR 3 - 9

DeVotchKa at Park City Egyptian Theatre, The Birthday Massacre at Soundwell, Maita at Kilby Court, and more.
DeVotchKa at Park City Egyptian Theatre DeVotchKa is the kind of band that you might feel some cool friends hipped you to not that long ago, possessing a sound that incorporated global elements and cabaret-friendly material alongside a stage show that hinted at the latter, especially when presented in larger venues. That "not that long ago" feeling, though, dissipates as you start looking at some dates.

MUSIC PICKS: FEB 24 - MAR 2

Claud at Kilby Court, Drive-By Truckers at The Commonwealth Room, Hiss Golden Messenger at The Commonwealth Room, and more.
Claud at Kilby Court Claud is headed up by Claud Mintz, a young performer, guitarist and songwriter who's able to deftly blend the sounds of various decades and genres into a really intriguing whole, as captured on the 2021 album, Super Monster, released on Phoebe Bridgers' label Saddest Factory. Unquestionably, the tracks are going to appeal first-and-foremost to a younger audience, and an NPR Morning Edition quote from Claud's press kit hints at this: "It's just songs about being young and figuring out your identity, figuring out what you want out of relationships.
