The Psychedelic Furs, The Lemonheads

When: Tue., Oct. 28, 8 p.m.-2 a.m. 2014

Now here's an odd combo: dark, broody (but still poppy) '80s alternative heroes The Psychedelic Furs, with sunny, druggy (but still poppy) '90s alternative heroes The Lemonheads. Sandpaper-voiced frontman Richard Butler and the P-Furs (which still include original bassist and brother Tim Butler), after toiling in the post-punk "modern rock" underbelly, inadvertently sold out in 1986 with "Pretty in Pink," even though their song preceded the same-named hit movie by five years. That track may still pay the bills, but it's the band's pre- and post-Molly Ringwald catalog that true alt-rock completionists cherish; singles like "Dumb Waiters" are just as chilling now as they were in 1981.
