Icona Pop Icona Pop Icona Pop Icona Pop

We love Icona Pop: Swedish sensations Icona Pop are absolutely blowing up the charts with the sugary sweet single "I Love It," though there's also plenty of indie rockin' attitude throughout the duo's delicious repertoire. The pair promises plenty of reasons to dance while they preview the forthcoming full-length "This Is...Icona Pop" (Record Company Ten/Big Beat Records), which is sure to please the palette of everyone who listens to ABBA through Tegan and Sara. Thursday, September 12 at Metro: www.metrochicago.com.

The Psychedelic Furs T"he The Psychedelic Furs The Psychedelic Furs

A Furs flashback: Even if The Psychedelic Furs don't record all that often anymore, the new wave mainstays seem to pop up on the road every few years and always put on a spectacular show. Much of that has to do with an enduring catalogue stacked with "Heartbreak Beat," "Love My Way" and the soundtrack staple "Pretty In Pink," plus front man Richard Butler's blossoming solo career (which includes a collaboration with techno hero Westbam on the brand new single "You Need The Drugs"). Saturday, September 14 at House Of Blues: www.livenation.com.

The Replacements The Replacements The Replacements The Replacements

The Replacements reunite at Riot Fest: The fact that The Replacements are reuniting on the road for the first time 22 years is enough of a reason to attend Riot Fest, but even without the reconvening of these college rock/punk powerhouses, the line-up is absolutely stacked for the alternative-minded. Additional headliners include Fall Out Boy, Blink-182 and The Pixies, along with significant under card stars like the Violent Femmes, Blondie, Public Enemy, Rancid, AFI, Sublime with Rome, Danzig and many more. Friday, September 13-Sunday, September 15: www.riotfest.org.
