AC Newman, Mynabirds

When: Sat., Oct. 27, 9 p.m. 2012

As prime mover of The New Pornographers, Carl "A.C." Newman has written dozens of criminally catchy songs that teem with ideas; even their titles, like "Encyclopedia of Classic Takedowns" from his latest LP, Shut Down the Streets, feel like pop treatises. But whether intoning with choirboy purity or a modest snarl, Newman remains a man who knows exactly when to dispense with words and just go na-na-na. His solo songs snap and build in ways familiar to fans of his main outfit. Onstage, unfettered from co-existence with his unwieldy, overly talented New Pornographer mates, the songs breathe a bit. With Mynabirds. —David Klein
