In the past two years, the Luminary Center for the Arts' Elevator Music Series has brought tons of up-and-coming bands to town -- including (but not limited to) Javelin, Warpaint, Abe Vigoda and Menomena. The 2011 edition of this occasional music series is upholding tradition: The first show of the year features Dan Bejar's weirdo-pop project Destroyer, with dreamy Dylaneers the War on Drugs opening. Tickets for the Monday, March 28, show are on sale Friday, January 7, at 8 a.m., and are $12 in advance, $14 day of show. Snag 'em here. Destroyer's new album, Kaputt, is out on January 25 -- and the band's label, Merge, says that an eight-piece Destroyer orchestra will be touring in March. (Translation: We're lucky.) The War on Drugs released the criminally overlooked Future Weather EP last year. Hear songs from both acts below.
Destroyer, "Bay of Pigs"
The War on Drugs, "Taking the Farm"
