Nada Surf 

7 p.m. Monday, June 25. The Old Rock House, 1299 South Seventh Street.

Nada Surf's latest, The Stars are Indifferent to Astronomy, is its first offering of new material in four years and just may be the one that repositions the band firmly back in the pop-rock limelight. Already being heralded by some die-hard fans as its best work since 2002's Let Go, Nada Surf's seventh studio album has has a drive and urgency to it that's been lacking in its last couple of efforts. Credit may be due to the band's decision to focus on replicating its live experience rather than meticulously documenting the minute finer points in the studio. The end result finds the trio playing passionate rock anthems with pop-sensible conviction and more hooks than a lakeside bait shop.

I'm King of the Class: If you haven't been paying attention since Nada Surf's breakout 1996 single "Popular," well, you should probably change that. Here's your chance.
