Downtown Boys
Thu. Sept. 7 | Fugazi's Guy Picciotto produced the Providence, Rhode Island band's acclaimed 2017 album, Cost of Living (Sub Pop), a fast-and-furious blast of bilingual punk to tear down borders and white supremacy. Singer Victoria Ruiz leads the full band through a closing chorus on album opener "A Wall": "A wall is just a wall and nothing more at all." Special Interest opens at 9 p.m. at Gasa Gasa.

Modest Mouse
Mon. Sep. 11 | With its 1997-2004 triptych of The Lonesome Crowded West, The Moon & Antarctica and Good News for People Who Love Bad News, Isaac Brock's Pacific Northwest gang shepherded its Tourette's-inflicted brand of indie rock from a fringy subgenre to the raging mainstream. Mass Gothic opens at 8 p.m. at Civic Theatre.
