Upon their early-'80s US debut, the Psychedelic Furs were lumped with 1,001 "new wave" bands I have zero interest in hearing today. (Have you tried listening to Heaven 17 lately? Terrible.) But the Furs' holy trinity—1980's arty The Psychedelic Furs, 1981's punky Talk Talk Talk, 1982's lush Forever Now—have only become more beloved as the years pass. Chalk it up to the aforementioned artiness, punkiness, and lushness, and the eternally compelling clash of Richard Butler's sneering sexiness and his band's pop-art racket. Opening the show: California dance-rock duo She Wants Revenge. DAVID SCHMADER
