Want to make it nearly impossible for would-be digital thieves to hijack your music online? Just name your band something as un-Google-able as “Stars.” However, if that were their intention, they would have named their newest album something like Red Dwarf instead of The Five Ghosts. This Montreal-by-way-of-New-York-by-way-of-Toronto indie-pop offshoot of indie super-group Broken Social Scene has been putting out creatively titled records for a decade now, and their aforementioned and self-released latest continues a tradition of elaborately earnest, electronica-tinged pop, this time going even heavier on the electro tip, generously utilizing electronic instruments from the ’80s. It all results in a sound that’s either retro or dated — critically inclined bloggers are still trying to decide which.
This being the proverbial day of show, tickets are now $20. Show starts at 9 p.m. and Wild Nothing open.
