Boris

Punk & hardcore

  • $

Though nominally hard rock or metal, Japan's powerful Boris is, like its American stylistic cousin the Melvins, more accurately a protean elemental force, as capable of droning experimentation as it is of heavy thrash. The band veers eclectically and...

Clairy Browne & The Bangin' Rackettes

Music

  • $
  • Critics' pick

With a name like that, Clairy Browne and her Bangin' Rackettes had to come from Australia—and here the saucy Melbourne soul band hits Chicago with its sassy blues rock riddled with backing singers, hitting the sweet spot between retroisms and original...

Mixing up terrifically, thrillingly abrasive electronic distortion with sublime melodies and psychotropic post-house, Fuck Buttons formed to make one soundtrack in 2004 and have since released three extraordinary albums. The latest is called Slow Focus,...

Maxïmo Park

Rock, Pop & Hip-hop

  • $
  • Critics' pick

England's reignited Maxïmo Park brings its jittery post-punk to the Bottom Lounge. A cherished indie band turned big-name headliner, the flag-bearer for British angular rock just released its fifth album, Too MuchInformation, another nervy slice of Gang...

Odonis Odonis

Music

  • $
  • Critics' pick

This Canadian noise-rock band would have felt right at home on Chicago's Touch & Go records with its screaching surf-punk and tough industrial shoegaze. The trio tours its latest for Fat Cat, Hollandaze.

Fronted by original Black Flag vocalist and Circle Jerks cofounder Keith Morris—currently operating at his nervous-brokedown best—and featuring members of Burning Brides, Hot Snakes and Redd Kross, Off! boasts a pretty damn respectable hardcore pedigree,...

Slint

Music

  • $$
  • Critics' pick

The most striking thing in Breadcrumb Trail, the new documentary about Slint, is just how young these guys were when writing "Nosferatu Man" and other scene-changing songs—just skinny teenagers in Kentucky. The Louisville band has strong ties to Chicago....

One of the latest acts to sign with prestigious British label 4AD, Sohn is a hotly tipped singer, songwriter and producer whose debut album Tremors plays with the human voice and melancholy landscapes of ambient electronica. The next James Blake or Active...

The Mowgli's

Rock, Pop & Hip-hop

  • $

Los Angeles indie-folk collective the Mowgli's have become known for their upbeat bubblegum songs—you probably know their winsome, jangly single "San Francisco." (And yes, they know they made a grammatical boo-boo with their name.)
