The Low Czars are a long-running Madison cover band who draw their set lists from across obscure and familiar corners of power-pop, British Invasion rock, R&B, and psychedelia. The band also boasts several very good singers, and enough instrumental finesse to treat the source material with care. At this show, they'll be performing Love's 1967 psych/folk classic Forever Changes in its entirety. The band only does this every so often, and it's just as impressive and fun as their more regular grab-bag sets. A lot of talented local musicians have been in the band over the years, and this show will feature the addition of vocalist Chris Vance, whose recent projects have included doom-metal band Grotto. Vance is also a veteran of highly specific cover bands himself, having done respectable work in local Halloween-time tributes to Joy Division, Bad Brains, and Radio Birdman. —Scott Gordon
