Boa, The Last Origin, Quality Cable 

Earlier this year the local, three-piece psych-rock band Boa released Someplace Special, their second record, and with it, they showed a lot of growth, mainly in the ability to deliver pristine harmonies and ambitious tweaks to their sound. And they’re even better in concert. Garage rockers The Last Origin and intricate indie-pop practitioners Quality Cable open. —Scott Recker
