Black Rebel Motorcycle Club 

Sometimes it seems as if a coin toss determines whether international concert tours include Boise on their list of stops. Luckily, that coin landed on heads, and the Black Rebel Motorcycle Club will be rumbling into town on their rock 'n' roll-fueled hogs.

This trio originated in San Francisco and now hails from Los Angeles. BRMC's psychedelic garage rock has a hint of folk revival with occasionally religious lyrics. Citing influences like rock icons John Lennon and The Rolling Stones, the band has a distorted '60s feel. Heck, even their name is a nod to the past--Black Rebel Motorcycle Club is the name of Marlon Brando's motorcycle gang in the film The Wild One. Those who are more familiar with contemporary mmmbop pop culture might recognize BRMC's song "Done All Wrong" off the 2009 installment of the Twilight series, New Moon.

BRMC's current tour takes the band all across North America and Europe throughout 2010, but with Boise as one of the earliest stops, the group should be able to muster all the vitality and enthusiasm that pulses through their soon-to-be released sixth studio album Beat The Devil's Tattoo. An opening performance by The Whigs will set the stage.

Thursday, March, 8 p.m., $15-$35, Knitting Factory Concert House, 416 S. Ninth St., 208-367-1212,
