Japandroids

Tuesday, June 19, Larimer Lounge, 303-291-1007.

Since 2006, Vancouver's Japandroids have been purveyors of a raw post-punk. Not the kind that became de rigueur in New York at the turn of the century, but rather the sort that is more sonically resonant, with the spiky, urgent melodies of Hüsker Dü and the free-flowing catharsis of the Minutemen. The band's aesthetic comes from a place further back than any modern trend, and even its album art is reminiscent of the kind of simple yet stylized images that graced the albums of early hardcore bands and acts from the first wave of post-punk. Touring in support of its latest release, Celebration Rock, this duo puts on a visceral live show that is worthy of its most obvious influences.
