Nightlife Highlights: Swirlies (July 1)

July 1. Boston band Swirlies ended up very different sonically than the way they started out. After forming in 1990 as a Go-Go's tribute act (?!), the group refocused on shoegaze when founding guitarist Damon Tutunjian and bassist Andy Bernick discovered My Bloody Valentine. Despite releasing albums only sporadically since their 1990s heyday (the last was 2009's download-only Swirlies' Magic Strop: Gavin's March to the Sea) and enduring numerous lineup changes (Tutunjian and Bernick remain), Swirlies continue, and will make this July tour stop at the Half Moon—fitting, since erstwhile drummer (and Fat Cat Records US main man) Adam Pierce is a local resident. With Breakfast in Fur. (SmashCrashBash!! #20 with Cellular Chaos and Dead Unicorn blows up July 3; Palm and Jobs jam July 24.) 9pm. $7. Hudson. (518) 828-1562; Thehalfmoonhudson.com.

Here's a throwback to their 1993 album, Blonder Tongue Audio Baton:
