Operators/Mister Moon/Key to the Mint

When: Thu., April 13, 9 p.m. 2017

Even though you may not have heard of Operators frontman Dan Boeckner before, there’s a good chance that you’ve heard his music somewhere. A member of Canadian indie rock band Wolf Parade, Boeckner released three albums with his side project Handsome Furs, and also teamed up with Spoon frontman Britt Daniel to form the side project Divine Fits. Operators, which formed in 2013, is a synth pop/punk project — it bears resemblance to some of Boeckner’s other projects but feels a little more individual than his previous work. “Cold Light,” a single from the band’s 2016 album Blue Wave, takes cues from '80s house music, post punk, and new wave. The songs on Blue Wave span lots of eras, but Boeckner’s distinctive voice keeps the band grounded in modernity. Local post-punkers Key to the Mint will open. (Cook)
