My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult has been killing since 1987, but they continue to put on a dynamic, very visual show, as Steven Hatley's photos from Sunday's stop at One Eyed Jacks make clear.

Tuesday night, Swedish dance pop band Little Dragon played to a packed house at The Republic. The show was a little contemplative in keeping with the tone of Nabuma Rubberband, but it was also a pleasant surprise to see the physical effort needed to create the band's sound. Vocalist Yukimi Nagano shook a racket-like tambourine with real commitment, and at one point or another everybody onstage used a drumstick. Perhaps for that reason and the oddly low volume, the synthesized music sounded simply like the future music that new wave predicted with none of self-conscious futurism of the '80s bands.
