Any old band (My Morning Jacket, Weezer) can do multiple shows here and play one full “classic” record a night, but cult Australian college-rock lifers the Church (they of “Under the Milky Way Tonight,” see) have hit upon a novel innovation to celebrate their 30th anniversary: three full records per show. Yes, in February they arrive in NYC for a two-night stand wherein they will play 2009’s horrifically named Untitled #23, 1992’s only slightly less horrifically named Priest=Aura, and 1988’s agreeably named Starfish, back-to-back-to-back. (Starfish is the one with “Under the Milky Way” tonight, just FYI.) Ain’t a lot of room on the set list for requests, alas.
The show hits the bizarre venue combination of Highline Ballroom February 16 and B.B. King’s February 17.
