Future Islands: They’re from Baltimore, they make synth-heavy “Post Wave” dance music, and they have a “killer” live show (mostly due to charismatic front man Samuel T. Herring). Is there really anything else you need to know? (If so, additional details such as “Dan Deacon is a fan,” “The singer sounds like Tom Waits,” and “Thrill Jockey released the band’s latest album, 2010’s In Evening Air,” should fill in any gaps.) Future Islands perform with Club Lyfestile and Norwegian Arms at 9 p.m. at Johnny Brenda’s; tickets to the 21+ show are $10.
