Man Man, Xenia Rubinos

Its five LPs have built Man Man up from Philadelphia weirdos with a cult following to internationally acclaimed, still-mustachioed manly men. And while 2013’s On Oni Pond may be the band’s most accessible and polished release to date, it continues the legacy of antic-ridden chaos and “doom-wop” established by records like The Man in a Blue Turban with a Face. Frontman Honus Honus and company still have what it takes to be the most charming creepers on Anti- Records, performing songs about Wolf Blitzer and “dead-daughter confetti” while sporting the occasional alien mask. Don’t let those elegant piano lines fool you; war paint is still a necessity at any Man Man show. Talented and experimental Brooklyn singer Xenia Rubinos opens Wednesday’s show.
