July 21. Connecticut's Miracle Legion defined college rock in the 1980s: melodic pop with heartfelt lyrics and guitars that jangled with a vengeance. Although their sound owed more than a little to R.E.M., the group has nevertheless maintained a staunchly insular cult following in the years since their 1996 split; a 2009 benefit/tribute album to assist singer Mark Mulcahy with medical expenses incurred from the loss of his wife includes performances by Michael Stipe, Thom Yorke, Dinosaur Jr., and others. After a 20-year wait, fans of the band will no doubt find the occasion of this reunion at Iron Horse Music Hall, one of Miracle Legion's favored venues of yore, to be a sweet reward. (Shawn Mullins sings July 14; Joe Ely emotes July 26.) $20, $22. 7pm. Northampton, Massachusetts.
