Black Lips, Vivian Girls, Gringo Star

When: Wed., April 6, 8:30 p.m. 2011

Atlanta's Black Lips have staked their reputation on being reliably unpredictable—from sets soaked in assorted bodily fluids to a brief but well-publicized spat with Wavves. Black Lips have happily taken the mantle of indie rock's mischief as their own, which is a bit ironic given how closely their music hews to garage rock standards, all '60s pop hooks and trebly guitars captured in grainy lo-fi. Vivian Girls seem to be more focused on letting their tunes evolve. Their latest, Share the Joy, builds on the group's fuzzy girl-group foundation with spare, wiry indie rock and crisp, no-longer-obscured melodies. — Bryan Reed
