Psychedelic Furs 

When: Sat., July 9, 8 p.m. 2011
Price: $25-28

The Furs are a bridge between punk and the subsequent synth-driven, Roxy Music-biting neo-romantic movement. Formed in 1977, the band reinforced an old-school spirit with jagged guitars and an early use of sax, which tended more toward noisy skronk than soothing ooze. Landing somewhere between Public Image Limited, Joy Division and the Cure, they were at once bristling and creamy, though success in the American market pulled their late-'80s albums toward shimmery dance pop. The Furs broke up in 1991, but they have reunited on several occasions since the millennium without releasing a new studio album. Their current tour includes a rendition of catalog highlight Talk Talk Talk in its entirety. —Chris Parker
