The Old Ceremony CD release, Megafaun 

When: Fri., Sept. 21, 9:30 p.m. 2012
Price: $10-12

Before disappearing into the cabaret-baroque aesthetic that became The Old Ceremony, frontman Django Haskins was a clever pop storyteller in the vein of Elvis Costello and Nick Lowe. With his band's latest release, Fairytales and Other Forms of Suicide, he's come full circle. To be sure, this is more sophisticated and nuanced than the albums he was making a decade ago, but the territory's often the same. It's a fitting follow-up to 2010's fine Tender Age, as it's not as moody or skeletal. That last album's dark cloud of dissipation has given way to something much more vibrant. With the Chocolate Drops still feeling their loss, The Old Ceremony squeaks past as the must-see. With Megafaun (acoustic). —Chris Parker
