Dads, Tiny Moving Parts, Choir Vandals

Fri., Nov. 21, 6:30 p.m.

I like nihilistic “no future” punk when it’s done well, but I prefer listening to musicians who’ve grown up enough to decide they want to use the years ahead of them (a choice that also makes it worthwhile to make sense of their pasts). The guys in Ann Arbor-based emo band Dads understand the confusion of twentysomethings who feel like they’ve been left behind on the road to home ownership and “happily ever after,” with their lives stagnating in limbo. On “Grand Edge, MI” from the great new I’ll Be the Tornado (6131), they sing about longing to talk with an estranged special someone and looking at old photos of long-absent friends—and when the song’s desolate, near-acoustic arrangement catches fire and turns into a massive rager, the uncertainty and dread in the lyrics burns deeper too. Dads are getting better at more than just evoking those feelings; their music is evolving too, with gorgeous melodies, spot-on vocal harmonies, and expertly constructed dynamic shifts. I’ll Be the Tornado, recorded at Minbal Studios in Chicago, is their second full-length, and it combines posthardcore fury with delicate restraint without sacrificing the power of either. From the start Dads had the potential to write this sort of material, but now they have the experience to realize it. —Leor Galil $12

Kevin Barnes, Esta Vivo

Fri., Nov. 21, 7 p.m.

I've spent the past several days listening to Of Montreal's new album, Lousy With Sylvianbriar, on repeat and just really enjoying that principal member Kevin Barnes gave up the Prince ghost and decided to make some more charming, jangly 60s pop via Athens, Georgia, circa the late 90s. —Gwynedd Stuart, 2013
