    The Matches/All Time Low/Sonny - 7 p.m. Wednesday, April 23. Pop's, 1403 Mississippi Avenue, Sauget, Illinois

    For two albums now the Matches have been toiling as under-the-radar mad scientists, suturing together various components of rock, punk, indie and cabaret to create a rollicking, exuberant sound as innovative as it is intense. The band's recent third...

    Sworn Enemy - 7 p.m. Tuesday, April 22. 2 Cents Plain, 1114 Olive Street

    During Sworn Enemy's 2002 track "I.D.S.", singer Sal Lococo vows to remain tethered to hardcore tradition: "We won't stray from our ways/Stay true till the day we die." Fortunately for headbangers, Lococo broke this pact. Sworn Enemy's latest album ...

    Native-American healing and a Trans-Siberian Orchestra guitarist rejuvenate metal thrashers Testament

    Filled with spirits, prophecies and demons, Testament's music and story are better than most, although the mundane details of the band's twenty-plus year history are common. Popular '80s thrashers make classic records. The lineup fractures. Their mu...

    Nine Inch Nails - Ghosts I-IV (The Null Corporation)

    Nine Inch Nails main man Trent Reznor makes the most of his recent hard-won freedom on the two-disc, all-instrumental Ghosts I-IV. It's the kind of record Interscope probably wouldn't have allowed Reznor to release when he was under contract -- not ...

    Jack Peate - Matine (XL)

    London singer-songwriter Jack Peate may remind you of Billy Bragg. It's not just the thickly accented delivery (which falls somewhere between overwhelming glee and heartbreaking resignation), but also the way both troubadours write about love like ...

    Weekend Round-Up!

    Apologies for my lack of a blogging presence lately: I've been felled by the Cold of Death(tm), and thus have not been rocking out, going out or doing much of anything. I'm still taking it easy this weekend, but in case you do feel like raging, here ...

    Remaking Michael - Why waste money (or steal) those bogus Thriller remixes when you can get better Michael Jackson reinventions legally -- for free? Plus, the history of the classic Harlem Globetrotters song "Sweet Georgia Brown."

    Two months ago, the silver-anniversary reissue of Michael Jackson's Thriller -- a souped-up, repackaged remembrance of the nine tracks of pop/soul perfection that the tree-climbing, surgical mask-wearing, yeah-it's-OK-to-sleep-with-kids, nutty sumbi...

    John Henry & the Engine - Under the Yellow Moon (Home Tone Records)

    On Under the Yellow Moon, it's unclear if John Henry & the Engine send us their greetings from Asbury Park, New Jersey, or Columbia, Missouri. The quartet is so steeped in Springsteenisms -- piano-led epics, small-town heartbreaks and a heavy relian...

    Unwed Sailor

    Unwed Sailor is a fitting name for a band that's geographically restless enough to have called Seattle, Chicago, Washington D.C., Mississippi and Little Rock, Arkansas, home in the past. Currently located in Lawrence, Kansas -- and buoyed by the rec...

    The Modern Skirts

    Athens, Georgia's pop legacy is well-preserved by the Modern Skirts, a quartet that has gracefully grown into its skin since purchasing a piano for $75 three years ago. Ben Folds' bittersweetness, the Beach Boys' spot-on harmonies and plenty of whol...

    If there is in fact a fine line between genius and madness, Dan Deacon takes that line, bellows distorted nonsensical lyrics and dances back and forth across it. While critics and hipsters fawned over Deacon's dense, absurdist style of electronica l...
