Interpol, Liars
(WaMu Theater) Liars’ new self-titled album finds the band balancing their obtuse, bad-trip drones with muscular, full-frontal rock. Whether freaking out on a single, sampled noise loop or thrashing through fuel-intensive prog punk, Liars are an electrifying live band. Vocalist/guitarist Angus Andrew hulks around the stage like a monster while Aaron Hemphill hangs then shreds sonic scenery and Julian Gross beats the shit out of his poor drum kit. It’s terrifying. Interpol, on the other hand, are one of the most boring live bands on the planet, even when they don’t have such a tough act to follow. ERIC GRANDY

Tullycraft, Math and Physics Club, Patience Please
(Crocodile) If you’re not ashamed to have a soft spot for Berkley’s witty pop punkers the Mr. T Experience, the Mates of State at their most ridiculously adorable moments, or LOLcats, then you’ll no doubt rearrange the little pieces of your heart to make some room for Tullycraft and their new album, Every Scene Needs a Center. The album starts with a quick burst of cuteness with the first song “The Punks Are Writing Love Songs,” the sonic equivalent of two kittens licking each other and asking “Scuze me, you haz flavor?” The band continue to shower feel-good vibes, throwing their sharp, steady beat and melodic bass lines in your face while Jenny Mears’s gleeful vocals unapologetically balance on the edge of being too upbeat.

Last time I saw Interpol they played after the highly energized Secret Machines and it seemed an equally bizarre pairing. Thankful I'm not the only one whom they put to sleep.

I don't want to do him; I want him to do some odd jobs around the house. Clean those gutters! Move these bricks!

I love Liars so much, I almost paid Interpol ticket prices and took the bus to that god-forsaken part of town just to see them.

But then I decided that sitting at home playing Wii would be a better use of my time.
