ROCK | Psychedelic Furs

Too suave to be punk, too cool to be new wave, The Psychedelic Furs were one of the many bands that fell in the cracks. In fact, with its punk aggression, 1977 London birthdate, and new wave associates it would make sense to say the Furs made the cracks. With its thick, fuzzed-out guitar driving behind Richard Butler's vocal rasp, the band unleashed a barrage of noir-tinged hits like "Heaven," "Into You Like a Train," and "Love My Way." I'm super excited to see this one.

The Psychedelic Furs play Sunday, May 10, at The Lilac Festival. 7 p.m. Free. rochesterevents.com/lilac-festival; thepsychedelicfurs.com.
