Destroyer, The War on Drugs, Shit Horse

When: Thu., April 7, 9 p.m. 2011

On the level, I think Philadelphia's The War on Drugs is one of the best bands making music right now. True rock polyglots, the band pulls from a half-dozen proud electric traditions—from Tom Petty and Creedence Clearwater Revival to Spacemen 3 and Flying Saucer Attack—to make songs that are psychedelic without feeling distant, and direct without feeling simple. They cannot come recommended highly enough. What's more, the headliner—Dan Bejar, or Destroyer, or the New Pornographer with the hair—is sort of a genius, building cities of hyper-referential yarns like Coleridge handed him the pen to the kingdom of Kubla Khan. Bejar's latest, Kaputt, relates smooth saxophone and disco beats to indie kids in a way chillwave's never quite done. Don't miss this one. With Shit Horse. $13–$15/ 9 p.m. —Grayson Currin

Price: $13-$15
