Nada Surf

It's been more than 15 years since Nada Surf’s hit single “Popular” dominated all sorts of airwaves. While the Brooklyn-based trio never reached those levels of, um, popularity again, they did something better: Matthew Caws, Daniel Lorca and Ira Elliot outlasted their peers, releasing six more albums filled with ambitious, sparkling pop smarts. Their latest LP – The Stars Are Indifferent to Astronomy, which came out in January – isn't as insular as the past few records. Caws opens up the whole wide world on songs like “Clear Eye Clouded Mind” and “No Snow on the Mountain.” Nada Surf recorded the album in their rehearsal space to capture the immediacy of a live performance, so the songs should sound right at home when the band drops by the Beachland this week. The show will also be a homecoming for the group's unofficial fourth member Doug Gillard (Guided By Voices, Death of Samantha), who appears on the last two records and plays guitar onstage to round out the sound. With Waters. 8:30 p.m. Thursday, June 21. Beachland Ballroom. Tickets: $20, $18 in advance. – John Patrick Gatta
