The Charlatans UK, Sherlock's Daughter 

When: Wed., Sept. 8, 9 p.m. 2010
Price: $18-$21

While early '90s peers (Happy Mondays, The Stone Roses) eventually combusted like one of Spinal Tap's drummers, The Charlatans proved durable, showcasing remarkable resourcefulness and musicality. Singer Tim Burgess' versatile tenor—equally adept at dreamy croon, insouciant strut and plaintive wheedling—is the cornerstone. They seemed more staid than the other Manchester phenoms, but the solid chops and traditional songwriting sensibilities that held them back provided a better foundation for growth and exploration. Aside from "Get Out of Bed," they've never been a home run hitter so much as an act that used the whole field effectively. With Sherlock's Daughter.—Chris Parker
