Zola Jesus, Xanopticon 

When: Mon., Oct. 24, 9:30 p.m. 2011
Price: $12-14

As Zola Jesus, the singer Nika Danilova recently released Conatus, her third full album but first after a barrage of hype and an association with a new swell of American gothic bands pushed her very near the spotlight. Conatus has been criticized for its lack of surprise—Danilova's voice sounds here like it always has, distant but somehow very aggressive, like a cabaret singer stranded in this digital decade. But a closer listen shows that she's dramatically sharpened her songs, meaning that her hooks can hold above a piano ballad just as assuredly as they can over straight, slight '80s dance themes. Zola Jesus has yet to miss a beat. With Xanopticon. —Grayson Currin
