Titus Andronicus w/Double Dagger, Dinowalrus
Wednesday, April 27, Black Cat ($15), doors at 8 p.m.
Titus Andronicus’ debut album The Monitor is a concept album based on the Civil War. Before their performance at Bulldog Alley last spring, I saw them sleeping in Sellinger Lounge. Double Dagger like to make noises with guitars. Dinowalrus sounds like a robot orchestra.
… And You Will Know Us by the Trail Of Dead, Surfer Blood, True Widow
Tuesday, May 10, Rock N Roll Hotel ($18), doors at 7 p.m.
Trail of Dead have been a stand by alternative rock band for over a decade. Their music is pretty straight forward. Surfer Blood are a poppy rock group whose debut album, Astro Coast, made a lot of buzz earlier this year.
of Montreal w/Painted Palms
Thursday, April 28, 9:30 Club ($25), doors at 7 p.m.
Like glitter? Of Montreal are from Georgia. There will be costumes, maybe even a celebrity cameo. Painted Palms are echoey and sound like what we hoped MGMT’s sophomore album would.
Yelle w/French Horn Rebellion
Wednesday, April 27, 9:30 Club ($20), doors at 10 p.m.
Yelle is a rock band. They play some fast songs, and they play some slow songs. French Horn Rebellion are weird.
