Icona Pop

Tue. Aug. 20 | Cookie Monster, tastemaker? The Sesame Street sweet tooth was late to the party in covering Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe," but his variant of Swedish duo Icona Pop's bombastic single "I Love It" — a willpower-empowering moral called "Me Want It (But Me Wait)" — is too cool for preschool. K. Flay and Sirah open at 9 p.m. at House of Blues.
