Destroyer Live at Terminal West

Acclaimed art-rock lifer Dan Bejar and his multi-talented bandmates brought the Destroyer songs to life with vigor and splendor. The show was opened by the equally excellent Mega Bog.

See Jens Lekman at The Earl

Playing with just a guitar and a sampler, the one-man show packed in more energy than a lot of full band performances, with a crowd of longtime fans eating up every bit of it.

The Shins at Coca-Cola Roxy

Despite numerous lineup changes and stylistic shifts over a nearly two-decade existence, The Shins remain one of indie rock’s most reliable room fillers. With their calling cards of nostalgia and James Mercer’s songwriting to fall back on, the most recent iteration of the band pulled from one of the genre’s most celebrated catalogs, allowing the thousands in attendance to relive their experiences with their songs.
