Eternal Summers

Mon., May 4, 6 p.m.
phone 313-769-8828

Eternal Summers is an apt name for this Virginia-based trio. Sweet vocals by Nicole Yun match perfectly with whimsical guitars and sunny melodies throughout their discography, but we might like their newest single “Gold and Stone” best for its bright vibe. Here’s to hoping the band’s stop in Detroit brings with it warm, Southern weather. (21+) $10

Death Cab for Cutie

Tue., May 5, 7:30 p.m.
phone 313-471-3200

Oh Ben Gibbard, praised by so many as a hipster god. You started Death Cab for Cutie back in ’97 all by yourself, only expanding the group to a threesome after seeing your original cassette tape earn some serious praise. Then came records and more records, a track called “I Will Follow You into the Dark,” an album called Transatlanticism, and another band called the Postal Service. Sure, your new album, Kintsugi, isn’t doing so well, but we still love you. $30 - $45
