When: Fri., June 22, 9 p.m. 2012

Mark Gardener and Andy Bell's falling out and the resultant dissolution of their joint songwriting vehicle, Ride—one of the best British rock bands ever—was a terrible tragedy of the '90s, right up there with Princess Diana's untimely death and Star Wars: Episode 1. In a commercially motivated, regressive misstep, Bell would go on to join Oasis (who wish they were one of the best British rock bands), in addition to forming a new band of his own, the regrettable Hurricane #1 (which sounded a lot like Oasis). Gardener, however, went on to release some stellar solo work of his own, in particular 2005's roundly gorgeous These Beautiful Ghosts. Live, he plays a mixture of Ride classics ("Twisterella," "Vapor Trail") and newer solo material. It all kicks equal amounts of ass. MORGAN TROPER
