Wolf Parade, Ogre You Asshole 

When: Sat., Nov. 6, 9 p.m. 2010
Price: $18-20

When Wolf Parade first formed, Spencer Krug was a few weeks removed from leaving off-kilter dramatists Frog Eyes, while Dan Boeckner has just added "formerly of Atlas Strategic" to his résumé. Seven years later—five since Modest Mouse's Isaac Brock signed Wolf Parade to Sub Pop during his A&R stint with the label—and now both Krug and Boeckner are known as much for their other bands (Sunset Rubdown and Handsome Furs, respectively) as they are for their collaborations. In some ways, this year's Expo '86 sounds like the sort of outing that Krug and Boeckner threw together as a respite from their day jobs, instead of it being their main concern. The album re-engineers what made Broken Social Scene and The Arcade Fire worth a damn, but it struggles for its own identity. Still, on a night when they're the only show in town, you can do much worse. With Ogre You Asshole. At LINCOLN THEATRE. —David Raposa
