French foursome Phoenix arrives with a complex evolution of its synthesized alt-rock sound. The band made famous by the songs “1901” and “If I Ever Feel Better” is touring on Bankrupt!, its fifth studio album, which features musicians swapping instruments, pentatonic song structures, and explorations of the limits of failure. Keeping up the familiar schizo melody jumping and nonsense lyricism, the quartet furthers its reluctant crossover onto the playlists of indie rock party boys.

Sunday 9/1. $41, 7pm. nTelos Wireless Pavillion, Downtown Mall. 245-4910.
