Melding punk rock energy with arena rock bluster, Vancouver duo Japandroids makes music that is unabashedly triumphant. Five years after the release of the acclaimed Celebration Rock, the pair marks its return with a new record, Near to the Wild Heart of Life. If the rest of the album is nearly as triumphant as its title track, you're in for an evening of fist pumping and high-fiving strangers. The Hold Steady frontman Craig Finn and his backing band, the Uptown Controllers, open the show.
