Odd Future

Nov. 16

Last year’s The OF Tape Vol. 2 received heady reviews: Rolling Stone called it “mesmerizing…cacophony that keeps your ears piqued” and Paste compared the sound to both MF Doom and Wu-Tang. Proving that this world is full of second chances, Odd Future is returning to The Republik for a reprise of their October 2012 stand, and it’s been a busy year. Standout efforts from Earl Sweatshirt and Tyler, the Creator both hit the Billboard 200, and Frank Ocean won two Grammys since Honolulu fans saw Odd Future last.
$35, 8 p.m., The Safehouse at The Republik, 1349 Kapiolani Blvd., bampproject.com.

The National

Jan. 31

The National’s big summer tour has included headlining the inaugural Boston Calling Festival, not to mention playing Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza and Outside Lands. Catch them in January when they trade dirty-gray New York snow for some time on Oahu.
$35, 8 p.m., The Safehouse at The Republik, 1349 Kapiolani Blvd., bampproject.com.

 

of Montreal

Feb. 3

of Montreal has been faithfully playing Honolulu since 2006, and they’re coming back this February with a new album. Frontman Nick Barnes says the band’s Lousy with Sylvianbriar (released this week) was “haunted” by Sylvia Plath, and inspired by Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan and The Rolling Stones. In other words, a hipster dream made manifest.
$25 in advanced or $30 day of show, 8 p.m., The Safehouse at The Republik, 1349 Kapiolani Blvd., bampproject.com.
