PLAN A: Leonard Cohen @ Copley Symphony Hall. Pop music’s finest deadpan miserablist is playing his first series of tour dates in 15 years, and there’s no reason to miss the show if you can afford tickets. That’s a big “if,” but there’s no guarantee that he’ll ever be back in town, so shell out the bucks, tightwad. PLAN B: Jerkagram, Talibam!, White Fang, Pregnant, Beware We Are the Werewolves of Belial, Fortress of Amplitude, Stag Hare, Italic Indian, Rob Walmart @ Che Café. Even if organizers are billing this show “Countdown to the End Times,” there are just as many good vibes here as bad ones. In particular, Talibam!’s frantic avant-garde buzzing should inspire at least a few smiles.BACKUP PLAN: Junior Reid @ Belly Up Tavern.   –Todd Kroviak

If you’re lucky enough to have tickets, here’s a little bit of what you should expect:

And I reallllllly hope he plays this song:

Quick Picks:

The Howls, Joel P. West, Gray Ghosts, Longstay @ The Casbah

Tall Tales & the Silver Lining, Drew Andrews and Spectral Cities, Really Big Birds @ Soda Bar

Princeton, The Union Line, Faded Paper Figures, By the Real Sea @ The Loft at UCSD
