Editorial Review

,Music festival season is more of a summer thing, but those who are fiending to see a diverse batch of bands in one setting would do well to check out the 9:30 Club on Tuesday. The only common thread that runs through the five bands taking the stage seems to be that they have traveled a long way to get here, but that often makes for a more enjoyable concertgoing experience than a homogeneous lineup. Headliners Tinariwen from Mali play epic, guitar-driven desert rock while Australia’s Architecture in Helsinki opts for bouncy, orchestral indie pop. Throw in Swiss singer-songwriter Sophie Hunger, buzzed-about psych-pop band Dom and Swedish electro-pop band Lo-Fi Fnk and there should be something for everyone.
