The Walkmen, Father John Misty

CASEY JARMAN
9 pm, Saturday January 26 | $22.
Roseland Theater
8 NW 6th Ave.
 

[CROONER ROCK] I’m not sure the Walkmen will ever be the stadium-packing act they deserve to be. But then, that’s good news for those of us who like seeing blockbuster shows in relatively intimate venues. Tonight’s Wonder Ballroom gig should fit that description. Last year’s Heaven continues the band’s rich tradition of balancing classic-sounding punk-y anthems (“Heartbreaker,” “Heaven”) with soul-searching ballads (“We Can’t Be Beat,” “Dreamboat”) that test the elasticity of frontman Hamilton Leithauser’s vocal cords. If that’s not reason enough to go, maybe treat it as a second New Year's Eve party: The Walkmen’s “In the New Year” is among the greatest (and most heart-wrenching) songs ever written on the subject.
