When: Sun., April 6, 8 p.m. 2014

Ever since Eleventh Dream Day turned their backs on major-label deals and the hard-touring life in 1993, they’ve been demonstrating the wisdom of only doing something when you’re good and ready. Sometimes that’s meant they’ve booked just a couple shows a year or waited six years between albums, but whenever they did play, you could be sure they really wanted to—and the fire and soul of their performances proved it. Lately, though, Eleventh Dream Day have been speeding up a bit. Three years after their previous long player, they’ve written ten new songs, and to tighten them up they’re pursuing the same strategy that made 2011’s Riot Now! (Thrill Jockey) their best album since the mid-90s. The current lineup of Rick Rizzo (vocals, guitar), Janet Beveridge Bean (drums, vocals), Doug McCombs (bass, guitar), Mark Greenberg (keyboards), and Jim Elkington (guitar) will play the new tunes and a few choice old ones every Sunday in April at the Hideout; that should be enough to get everybody into recording trim. —Bill Meyer Nick Tremulis opens.
