Spiritualized, Grand Ole Party

God: Spiritualized made even atheists see that fraudulent phantasm on many occasions during the stroboscopic brain-bangs the act called its concerts back in the '90s. Similarly, Jason Pierce and Co.'s first three classic albums of gospel- and junk-fueled psych-rock elevated more minds than JetBlue.

This year, though, as Pierce tours in support of his well-received Songs in A&E, expect the older, mellower, extra-acoustic Spiritualized to be more coffeehouse than opium den. It's unfortunate, but San Diego's raucous Grand Ole Party could offer the more energetic performance on this bill.
