Okkervil River, Titus Andronicus, Future Islands

When: Wed., June 1, 9 p.m. 2011

One bill seems too small for these three bandleaders: Sam Herring of Future Islands, Patrick Stickles of Titus Andronicus and Will Sheff of Okkervil River are three of the most emphatic frontfolks in indie rock today. The music they make is wildly different, from Future Islands' throbbing disco sadness and Titus' clenched-fist, high-howl electric epics to Okkervil's erudite and earnest chamber folk orchestrations. But each band plays with absolute belief, as if they're the first band to sing, to preach and to translate what it means to have a busted heart or to be a confused kid falling in love with a hometown that once felt like hell. —Grayson Currin
