Hedwig and the Angry Inch

Tue., Feb. 21, 8 p.m.

This show is all about gender identity, gender bending, and gender fluidity — without taking itself too seriously, of course. Those familiar will already know the musical’s infectious tunes like, the mythologically based “Origin of Love,” “Tear Me Down,” the titular “Angry Inch,” and my personal favorite, “Wig in a Box” as well as the storyline, which follows transgender Hedwig Robinson as she tries to make it big as a rock star while riding the coattails of another successful singer. This traveling show stars Tony and Olivier Award nominee Euan Morton, who is a little burlier than we’re used to in a Hedwig, but we’re willing to give him a shot. $39

The Necks

Tue., Feb. 21, 8 p.m.

The Necks are probably one of the best bands in the world (we mean, The New York Times thinks so), and definitely the most unique band from Australia. Since the late 1980s the Necks have produced original post-rock-ish type music that holds its own and rewards repeated listening. Their debut album, Sex, consisted of one nonstop track, and that’s what they do best: long tracks with little nuances throughout the piece that keep listeners on their toes. It took some time for North America to buy in, and thankfully we haven’t gone to war with Australia yet so they’ve been allowed in the country. The band is touring behind its 19th studio album, Unfold, which promises to be just as expertly crafted as the rest, blending tradition with experimentation. $15
