Fuck Buttons
and Clipd Beaks at Great American Music Hall [$16]

While Animal Collective's Merriweather Post Pavilion may have been the go-to critic's pick last year, Fuck Button's sophomore LP Tarot Sport was a more than worthy contender for 2009's album of the year. Armed with an array of drum machines and synths generally associated with electro, the duo inexplicably managed to create a post-rock masterpiece in the spirit of Mogwai, God Speed You Black Emperor! and Explosions in the Sky -- if you slept on this one, we strongly recommend giving it a listen. Be sure to catch the Bristol, England-based duo tonight at Great American Music Hall.

Other picks:

Beehive Spirit, Common Loon and Alright at Elbo Room [$6]

Neighbors, Organ Trail and Psychic Handbook at Uptown [free]

Jakob Dylan and Three Legs, Neko Case, Kelly Hogan and The Felice Brothers and honeyhoney
at The Regency Ballroom [$25]

 

Noise Pop News: Butterfly Bones + Man/Miracle Split 7"

We're still tripping off of Butterfly Bones' looped beats, and heavy synths from the last Rumble at Cafe du Nord just a few short weeks ago.
