When: Tue., April 2, 8 p.m. 2013

Ask the postrock nerds, and they'll all tell you that it's crucial you experience Sigur Ros performing live before you die. And they're all right. The Icelandic band puts on a performance that's one part ambient orchestra, three parts hypnotic theater—which when combined make you feel, just for an instant, that transcending into a higher realm of being is actually plausible. It's not—you're still on earth and Dennis Rodman is still almost relevant—but it is one hell of a show. Experimental musician Daniel Lopatin (aka Oneohtrix Point Never) opens. See Soundboard for more.

Price: $45
