Neither Japanese nor droids.

Japandroids' Celebration Rock was rightly one of the most, er, celebrated records of 2012. The Canadian duo (fact: 80 percent of Canadian bands today are duos) reinforces its minimalist, drum-and-guitar structure with an aesthetic that values maximum strength: power chords, emo bluster, anthemic choruses. There are also some killer lines, like Remember that night you were already in bed/Said 'Fuck it'/ Got up to drink with me instead? Imagine if the Replacements were weaned on '90s punk, and you're in the ballpark. Noisy shoegaze group A Place to Bury Strangers opens.

Wednesday, May 29, at the Granada. $17.
