CMJ Recommendation: Tobacco at the Mercury Lounge
Tobacco's "Street Trash"
Brighton whisper-crooners Fujiya & Miyagi (9pm) take the most well-worn krautrock tropes and the least interesting parts of Clinic and turn it into a cold, mildly danceable shrug about dishwashers and encyclopedias and stuff—the type of art-damaged band who would have a name no one can remember and then put it in a song anyway. Better to stick with opener Tobacco (8pm), who has all the sepia-toned vocoder bongwater of his band Black Moth Super Rainbow, but with a hip-hop edge. CMJ show with Who Made Who (7pm). — Christopher Weingarten
