For over fifteen years, the Canadian quartet known as Our Lady Peace has been parlaying its version of slightly grunge-influenced rock while racking up CD sales of well over 5 million.

Over that time, the band has gone through the predictable bouts with major labels, even losing founding member Mike Turner in the rigmarole that followed the release of 2002's Gravity, an album often labeled as a "sell-out" by fans.

Our Lady Peace's most recent effort, Burn Burn, is considered a return to form as it features a more aggressive sound that harkens back to the band's 1994 debut Naveed.

In any case, it's always good to see a band freed from major label constraints, so it's a safe bet to believe that vocalist Raine Maida will be at his unencumbered and overly earnest best this evening.

Electric Touch, a youthful foursome from Austin, opens up what should be a nice way to spend a Monday night in Big D.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
