Anberlin/Circa Survive/Foxy Shazam 

Doors at 7 p.m. Tuesday, January 18. Pop's, 401 Monsanto Avenue.

In a rock-music scene currently littered with package tours consisting of four or five bands, all of which sound like they were cut from an identical piece of snot-covered cloth, seeing two of modern alt-rock's best and brightest pair up for a tour gives this writer just a small smidgen of hope. Florida's Anberlin focuses more on the anthemic side of the rock spectrum, whereas Philadelphia natives Circa Survive aim more for the esoteric. Onstage, however, both groups deliver completely sincere passion and intensity. Throw in the carnival-art antics of opening act Foxy Shazam and this is the first great tour of 2011.
