A Texas church-rock band dressed up like extras from Godspell? Was anybody really that surprised when The Polyphonic Spree’s second record Together We’re Heavy tanked? They’re still at it though—-except now they look like an army of Gary Numans. If you don’t find that disquieting, perhaps you’ll enjoy checking them out on Saturday, June 30, at their recently announced 9:30 Club show.

If not there’s always “An Evening with the Richard Thompson Band,” on Friday, June 22.

Meanwhile Black Cat announces shows by Japanese Melt Banana (Tuesday, June 12) and much loved queercore band Team Dresch (Wednesday, June 20). Tickets for all of these events are currently available through Ticketmaster.
