Fri. Sept. 16 | Pulling from forgotten pub rock and classic power-pop, Twin Peaks' 2016 album Down in Heaven is what happens when the fuzziest of static-clinging lo-fi garage bands gets a modest studio budget for its no-filler rock 'n' roll with perfect pop hooks.

Tank & the Bangas opens at 8 p.m. at the Civic Theatre.
