Mission Of Burma

When: Fri., Aug. 13, 9 p.m. 2010

Reunions always bring up the question of whether a band's legacy was better left untouched. But Mission of Burma has made more music since its 2002 reunion than it did in its '80s incarnation, so the more pressing issue has emerged: Is Mach II the better version? If not, last year's The Sound the Speed the Light certainly made it closer to a toss-up, packing together 12 leak-free tunes with workmanlike mastery. Mission of Burma remains a compellingly nonshowy live act, too, ripping out coiled rhythms and heroic choruses with the kind of humble power that was their core from Day 1— only now with a volume of repertoire that means every night is both dependable and surprising.—Marc Masters

Price: $16-18
