The Toadies, Rosies

When: Tue., June 16, 8 p.m. 2015

“Possum Kingdom,” the biggest hit by Texas alt-rockers The Toadies, is, in the modern parlance, “problematic.” Its protagonist lures a lady behind a boathouse, implores her to give it up and unambiguously offs her with “so help me Jesus” on his lips. Murder ballads were certainly not invented in the mid-’90s (and Nick Cave was weirdly scratching that particular itch then, too), but it still seems a pretty creepy calling card with which to anchor a 20th-anniversary tour in 2015. —Jeff Klingman

Price: $20-$24
