  • The Dream Syndicate @ Turf ClubL.A.'s great (greatest?) '80s students of the Velvet Underground are gonna play their debut album, The Days of Wine & Roses, which you probably want them to. Since that landmark was so dependent on the way long ago departed guitarist Karl Precoda, filtered Lou Reed through psychedelia, I'm a little curious about how guitarist Jason Victor, who stepped in when the band reformed, adjusts the sound to his own talents. Judging from the reformed band's latest, Ultraviolet Battle Hymns and True Confessions, Victor has plenty of tricks of his own.

  • Beth Orton with Heather Woods Broderick  @ Cedar Cultural CenterA quarter-century ago, Orton was a quiet pioneer in the world of post-expressive singer-songwriters, fusing British folk stoicism with a mix of electronic and organic settings that nailed a certain wistful mood. Her first album in six years, Weather Alive, could almost sound like a victory lap in celebration of how ahead of the game she was--if Orton wasn't so modest about it all.
