Sunday, May 11: Crosses

Combining their first two EPs and adding several new tunes, Crosses released their debut album earlier this year. The minimalist electronic band — Deftones’ Chino Moreno, Far’s Shaun Lopez, Chuck Doom — has put together a formidable sound, and it’s clear that each musician here is really enjoying the project. A question hangs in the air, though, regarding the sheer self-indulgence of Moreno. The band’s eponymous album is filled with fine tunes, but there’s little evidence to support the claim that Moreno actually is a great songwriter (see those first three Deftones albums, in particular, or even Team Sleep’s 2005 outing). While providing some evocative electronic musings, Crosses may actually have an identity crisis. Plenty have pointed out the odd typography in the band’s name, which just adds confusion to the hodgepodge of musical styles contained within. 8:30 p.m. House of Blues. (Eric Sandy)
