There was a time when this Louisville band was filed under “experimental” and shared bills with the likes of U.S. Maple, but those gigs opening for Duran Duran a couple years back were more in line with where they were heading: straight to 80s-inspired dancey art-rock. Bring On the Comets-, their upcoming full-length on Astralwerks, sounds like a document from a past golden age where rockers and club kids could all get along. The songs are sharply turned out, hooky as hell, and at their edgiest recall Ideal Copy-era Wire. But the title track–the most glorious–sounds like the follow-up hit to “Melt With You” that Modern English never made. Walter Meego opens. a 7:30 PM, Subterranean, 2011 W. North, 773-278-6600 or 866-468-3401, $14, $12 in advance. A –Monica Kendrick
