The Vaselines

When: Tue., Jan. 20, 9 p.m. 2015

Are these Glaswegians’ original records from the late 1980s so amazing that Nirvana’s multiple cover versions seem pale in comparison? Heck yes. Are their more recent releases serviceable but not necessarily things you play every day? Well, we don’t want to be mean, but yes, the answer is yes. However, just because their recent records aren’t so great, that’s no reason at all to miss a chance to see them live. They’re still cute as buttons and in a live setting, both the hook-heavy music and the lyrics are extra filthy.
