MONDAY MARCH 26
Brooklyn indie-pop duo CHAIRLIFT took their time releasing the follow-up to their 2008 debut Does You Inspire You? (Kanine). Long enough, perhaps, to have some people wondering if the ridiculously catchy, commercial success of the iPod nano-plugging single "Bruises" was about as far as this band would go. Those people were likely pleasantly surprised by Chairlift's sophomore effort, January's Something (Columbia), which found the chirpy twosome flexing their creative muscles and creating infectious, lyrical pop not destined for use in an Apple spot. Hear for yourself when the they stop by Brighton Music Hall, 158 Brighton Ave, Allston | 8 pm | $14 | ticketmaster.com.
Amidst all the glamour, glitz, and comparable shit (what the eff was that, Minaj?) at this year's Grammy Awards, it might be easy to forget the opening salvo from BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN & THE E STREET BAND. But only because instead of dropping the bass or attempting to overtly shame the Catholics, the Boss stuck to what he does best, grinding through an authoritative rendition of "We Take Care of Our Own" from his most recent LP, Wrecking Ball (Columbia). On tour in support of the release — his first without dearly departed saxophonist Clarence Clemons — he'll be running through all the hits, and more, at the TD Garden, 100 Legends Way, Boston | 7:30 pm | $67.50-$100.50 | ticketmaster.com.
