Come, Rebecca Gates & The Consortium, Sad Horse

When: Fri., June 21, 9 p.m. 2013

Come made four albums in just six years, the most recent of which, Gently, Down the Stream, turned 15 earlier this year. Nevertheless, the darkly angry Bostonians have reunited to celebrate the anniversary of their first album, 11:11, which single-handedly brought blues rock out from under the shadow of good ol' boyishness. Revisiting Come's catalog from a distance, it's surprising how current their loud, unapologetically cerebral albums sound. But all of this obscures current events: Come had their heyday in the '90s, but frontwoman Thalia Zedek just came out with a new solo album, Via. Zedek is a tenacious rocker, and it's oddly comforting that she has never moved past the rage that threads its way through every album she's been involved with. Her raspy voice sounds much the same as it ever did: sad and mad and take-no-prisoners. REBECCA WILSON
