June 8 | British electropop darling Charlotte Aitchison, aka Charli XCX, gained attention on other artists' hits — Icona Pop's "I Love It" and Iggy Azalea's "Fancy" — but she finished 2014 with the release of her critically acclaimed Sucker. Charli just announced a summer tour with Jack Antonoff's project Bleachers. At 7 p.m. at House of Blues.

Mon. June 8 | Compared to the Danish post-punk band's more primal screaming and frenzied You're Nothing, its latest album, Plowing Into the Field of Love, seems polished and sophisticated, marked by the addition of strings (mandolin, viola).
