The Airborne Toxic Event 

When: Mon., Oct. 13, 8 p.m. 2014
Price: $20 ADV, $22 DOS
Ten years ago, the Airborne Toxic Event singer-guitarist Mikel Jollett set out to write the Great American Novel. He ended up writing a collection of songs that would eventually form the band’s self-titled full-length debut. You could say he wrote a Great American Album instead of a novel. Now known for its sweeping anthems that recall the likes of Bruce Springsteen and U2, Airborne initially formed as a stripped-down two-piece featuring Jollett and drummer Daren Taylor. The band would eventually grow and add guitarist Steven Chen, bassist Noah Harmon and viola player Anna Bulbrook. For its most recent release, last year’s Such Hot Blood, Jollett spent time listening to old Springsteen albums and watching documentaries about how they were made as inspiration. And it shows in the songs’ themes. Expect tonight’s performance to have a Springsteen-like aura to it. 8 p.m., $20 ADV, $22 DOS. House of Blues. (Niesel)
