Judas Priest is the big ticket at the Cricket this week. The hard-rocking blokes’ll be joined by Zakk Wylde’s Black Label Society and, yes, the boys are back in town, Thin Lizzy.... Foster the People will dish “Pumped Up Kicks” to all the slow kids at Soma. Cults opens that show....
Local occult akt Interrobang’ll clang at Ruby Room with Corduroy and Ghost Come Back. Chad says Interrobang sounds like Tortoise covering Jobim. I’m in.... And up at Belly Up, the progmeister, Adrian Belew (Bears, Crimson, Zappa), and his power trio will get all wah-wah diddlee-diddlee-diddlee. (That’s what prog tabs look like.)
