Evocative Liverpool outfit Echo and the Bunnymen headlines Union Transfer tonight, and reports from its summer tour indicate that the band is drawing from across its 36-year catalog of catchy post-punk in this run of shows. Hits like “The Killing Moon” and “Bring on the Dancing Horses” are in the mix, as well as a variety of deep cuts and selections from its new LP Meteroites, released this year. Also listen for some sweet covers – a Brooklyn Vegan rundown of the band’s two-night stand at Irving Plaza showed covers of Bowie’s “The Jean Genie” and The Doors’ “People Are Strange.” Tickets and information on the show can be found at the XPN Concert Calendar. Below, watch the music video to “Lips Like Sugar.”

Rosanne Cash returns to the area tonight to perform at Longwood Gardens’ summer concert series. The singer-songwriter released her latest record, The River and the Thread, earlier this year; watch a 1 Mic, 1 Take performance of “Etta’s Tune” below and get information on the show here.
