Editors + Hot Hot Heat + Louis XIV

Monday, February 4

Moving on up the venue food chain, Birmingham’s Interpol sound-alikes (who do that type of “dark,” brooding romance better, IMHO) Editors finally make it to the Showbox after two gigs in as many years at a bursting Chop Suey. Now everybody can finally get a good view of lead vocalist Tom Smith’s tortured genuflecting and the manic guitar mastery of Chris Urbanowicz, who tends toward U2-esque spirals of sound. So while I do suggest arriving early for your good view, I can’t lend the same recommendation regarding these openers, both of whom I had no idea had a remaining fan base. RACHEL SHIMP

Listen to a sample of Editor's "Push Your Head Towards the Air."
