See them live now, and you'll be able to tell everyone you were a fan before they were a big deal. Tue 8 p.m.
Counting Crows introduced the world to "Mr. Jones" 20 years ago. Four albums, 20 million records sold, and one Academy Award nomination later, it looks like everything after has been pretty good, too.

Lyrics aren’t necessary for this Los Angeles-bred electronic-rock duo; their doubleneck bass and drums are expressive enough. Kristian Dunn and Tim Fogarty have released five full-length albums, and their songs have been featured in television shows and films. Brooklyn-based “electronic music pioneer” Eliot Lipp will open. Fri 9 p.m.
