Empire of the Sun
Thu. Sept. 19 | The Civic Theatre's comeback begins with Empire of the Sun, the Australian electropop duo whose modestly catchy sophomore clubber Ice on the Dune (Capitol) belies its fantastical production design: two sci-fi movie heroes in search of an apocalypse, so Down Under they're over the top. Alpine opens at 9 p.m. at the Civic Theatre.

The Love Language
Thu. Sept. 19 | Incorporating 20 friends from the Raleigh, N.C., rock community and named after its artist-haven recording space, Ruby Red (Merge) finds The Love Language at its most generous, doling out a honeypot of sumptuous big-band pop and hard-charging rhythms. At 8 p.m. at Gasa Gasa.

Murder By Death
Sun. Sept. 22 | On its 2012 release Bitter Drink, Bitter Moon (Bloodshot), the brooding Bloomington, Ind., tunes gently segue from sparing to lush to folksy to orchestral and back around again. Larry and His Flask opens at 10 p.m. at One Eyed Jacks.
