The Joy Formidable, Skrillex, Bad Brains Lead This Week's Show Announcements


The Joy Formidable, at The Firebird September 21.
  • The Joy Formidable, at The Firebird September 21.

The broken glowsticks and prepubescent sweat have barely dried on the Pageant floor from last week's epic Skrillex show, but the man, the myth, the haircut is returning for an encore performance on November 3. H.R. (Human Rights), the lead singer of hardcore pioneers Bad Brains, plays Fubar next Tuesday, July 26, with Cerebral Ballzy. If you missed precious The Joy Formidable at the Luminary this spring, and don't feel like shelling out a zillion dollars for Lolla, you can catch the Welsh darlings at The Firebird on September 21.
