Heads on Sticks, Gross Ghost, Eston and the Outs

When: Wed., Oct. 8, 9 p.m. 2014

“Big Decision,” the tour-de-force A-side from Heads on Sticks’ forthcoming single, summarizes their distinctive powers. While xylophones twinkle and synthesizers blare, the song keys on a distorted saxophone hook that’s both triumphant and sultry; guitars cut arcs through the noise. It’s art-rock rendered as sweaty club music, a strange balance this group comes mighty close to perfecting. Gross Ghost’s propulsive pop-rock isn’t quite so unique, but the band’s effervescence is hard to resist. —Jordan Lawrence
