David Bazan & Band, Centro-Matic, Sarah Jaffe 

When: Sat., June 25, 9 p.m. 2011
Price: $9-11

Though David Bazan once recorded under the band name Pedro the Lion, few singer-songwriters have stayed their respective course in the admirable way Bazan has. For more than a decade, he's questioned his faith and belief in everything, from himself and his God to his friends and his foes. All the while, he's generally clung to an unmoving three-piece rock deadpan, where the electric guitar goaded drums that marched and bass that plodded. The sound's provided an unmoving context and baseline, a zero that's allowed the Bazan faithful to evaluate his feelings about the world rather than his latest gimmicks for telling the same old woebegone tale. His latest, Strange Negotiations, is one of his best, full of the same unflinching personal investigations that apparently aim to make him as uncomfortable as his audience. The excellent Centro-Matic and Sarah Jaffe open. —Grayson Currin
