Born Ruffians, Moon King 

When: Tue., April 23, 8 p.m. 2013
Price: $10-12

For better and worse, Birthmarks, the fourth album from Canadian band Born Ruffians, sounds like a survey course on the sounds of indie rock. These brisk tracks have as much to do with Fleet Foxes' luxuriant vocals as with Vampire Weekend's peppy guitars, as much with Passion Pit's headlong pop euphoria as Hot Chip's engrained refrains. It's trendy but it's skilled, fresh but familiar, good but not entirely necessary. With Moon King. —Grayson Currin
