Death Cab for Cutie 

Death Cab for Cutie -- named for a strange song by the stranger '60s underground comic band and Monty Python associates, the Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band -- has the dubious honor of being the first band to experience the "O.C. factor" and its impact on their popularity. That is, a character on the nighttime teen drama mentioned the band during an episode, and the band's buzz grew into the kind of outright roar that can only be generated by millions of eager under-21s. Far from being just another gang of teen idols, though, the thoughtful indie rockers in Death Cab have spent years forging their brand of confessional, emotional indie rock that's as musically mature as it is lyrically bird-with-a-broken-wing. Their latest release, Plans, is their fifth CD, but their first on their fancy new label Atlantic. It also is the band's most complex work yet, with layers of rapturous sound wrapping delicate, vulnerable lyrics. Catchy pop-rockers OK Go open. Tickets $28. -- Alison Fensterstock
