The Cult, White Hills 

When: Mon., July 29, 8 p.m. 2013
Price: $30-45
If all you ever heard by the Cult was the arena-ready chorus of "Fire Woman" or the AC/DC-aping opening riff from "Love Removal Machine" on classic rock radio, you might have filed them away under butt-rock. To be sure, that's part of the Cult's DNA, but there are also traces of goth, post-punk, and heavy metal, not to mention Ian Astbury's powerhouse pipes. On occasion, the Cult found the sweet spot in that Venn diagram—mostly just on sophomore album Rain, so here's hoping for heavy Rain in Monday night's set. Show up early for Hawkwind devotees White Hills, whose So You Are... So You'll Be comes out in late August and offers a more refined blast of the band's space-rock. MATT SULLIVAN
