Tonight's Concert Pick: The Asteroids Galaxy Tour at Union Transfer - WXPN | Vinyl At Heart

Add The Asteroids Galaxy Tour to your list of “worthwhile bands you didn’t realize you already knew.” The work of this jazzy psychedelic-pop duo has been featured in numerous television shows and commercial advertisements. Browsing through the selections on your iPod Touch might stir up memories of the 2008 Apple commercial that introduced The Asteroids Galaxy Tour’s first single, “Around The Bend.” Cracking open an icy Heineken, meanwhile, might remind you of “The Golden Age,” featured in last year’s beer campaign. Though ad-related publicity has, in part, kept The Asteroids Galaxy Tour’s popularity afloat for the last two and a half years, the band’s new album, Out Of Frequency, could earn its place in pop culture’s collective consciousness purely on its own musical merit. (And it might even inspire a fresh wave of memorable ads that will play on loop in your mind.) The Asteroids Galaxy Tour performs with Vacationer at 8:30 p.m. at Union Transfer; tickets to the all-ages show are $15. —Lisa Henderson
