You ready for the mystery? The Residents' 40th anniversary tour is coming to town.

When: Wed., Feb. 6, 8:30 p.m. 2013
Price: $25-30

It's difficult to write about The Residents without sliding into instant and ultimate hyperbole: They are completely anonymous! They are very influential! They are endlessly prolific! They are, as one book posited in its title, America's Most Eccentric Band. Above all, though, The Residents—a crew of unidentified and tireless pop music and multimedia misfits who have been warping beats and caricaturing melodies for four decades now—are an endless reminder of the possibilities of creativity when that is the end-all, be-all purpose of your career. That's not to say they're not sharp business people: They just issued a $100,000 box set, and, hey, we're still curious after all these years. WEDNESDAY, FEB. 6, AT THE ARTSCENTER. $25–$30/8:30 p.m.
