 Certain bands should just be required to tour every summer and then spend the fall and winter making a new album. Bands like Silversun Pickups, for example.   

Six Organs of Admittance

If Ben Chasny had his way, he wouldn't be trapped here on Earth but rather levitating somewhere far above it. Over the 14-year span of releases from Six Organs of Admittance, Chasny's pet project fleshed out by a rotating cast of players, he's made his love for the heavens perfectly clear.

When Tim O’Brien plays guitar, mandolin or fiddle, the result could generally be described as Bluegrass. But it also represents the breadth of his myriad influences and his startling ability to incorporate them into his personal style.
  

As I Lay Dying

Nov. 30 • Madison Theater

There is something to be said for a Metal band that can incorporate its religious beliefs into the music without coming off as cliché or pompous. San Diego Metalcore outfit As I Lay Dying has been one of those bands.  

Mr. Gnome with Shadowraptr

Nov. 30 • MOTR Pub

Few duos make the visceral impact or cover the incredible range of Cleveland’s Mr. Gnome, comprised of impish guitarist/vocalist Nicole Barille and hammer-and-tong drummer/keyboardist Sam Meister.

Chris Isaak

Nov. 21 • Taft Theatre

Delta Spirit

Nov. 16 • Bogart's

Unless you’ve seen Delta Spirit before, there is no way you are fully prepared for one of its concerts. Not so much a raging, thrashing party as just a gentle, bouncing ocean of people, the crowd’s vibe at a Delta Spirit concert is transcendent, almost spiritual.   

JEFF the Brotherhood

Nov. 16 • Bogart's
