Echo & the Bunnymen

When: Wed., Sept. 16, 8 p.m. 2015

One of the few U.K. post-punk bands still kicking around, Echo and the Bunnymen made a glorious return to form last year with Meteorites, a moody, atmospheric record that sounds a lot like their subdued releases from the middle of the decade. Singer Ian McCulloch and guitarist Will Sergeant are the only remaining original members in a group that's fleshed out the lineup with a group of capable young hired hands. When the band played House of Blues a few years back, McCulloch's singing was solid on classic tracks such as “Bedbugs and Ballyhoo” and melodic tunes like “Bring on the Dancing Horses” and “Lips Like Sugar.” Their rendition of “The Cutter,” one of their best tunes, retained the original's snotty post-punk spirit. Expect a similar performance at tonight's show. (Jeff Niesel)
