Dirty Beaches

When: Mon., Sept. 26, 8 p.m. 2011

On his latest record, Badlands, Alex Zhang Hungtai, a Taiwan-born Canadian who performs by the nom de stage Dirty Beaches, chews up early ‘50s rock and roll and spits it back in its essential form — but not before distressing it so that it might sound like it was recorded at a bottom of the well. His stuff sets up an atmosphere that seems both nostalgic and alternate-dimensional — like a biker bar on Mars.

Price: $8 advance, $10 door.
