Cost: $40+
CRITIC’S PICK: Midwestern rockers BoDeans probably won’t have another hit as ubiquitous as 1993’s “Closer to Free.” But even with just co-founder/frontman/singer/songwriter Kurt Neumann holding down the fort, the band has been cranking out impressive pop-rock albums over the past three decades. A fine new song “You Wasted Me” was released a few months ago proving there is plenty of creative gas left in the band’s tank. — Hal Horowitz

BoDeans, led by Kurt Neumann, continue to shape American music with their timeless tunes and high-octane performances. Their latest album, “4 The Last Time,” captures the essence of the modern American experience. Originating from Waukesha, WI, in 1986, BoDeans gained recognition with hits like “Closer To Free.” They’ve performed alongside music icons and their music has been featured in numerous TV shows and movies. Kurt Neumann crafted the latest album during the pandemic, focusing on a classic guitar-driven sound with energetic anthems like “Ya Gotta Go Crazy.” The album explores themes ranging from nostalgia to reflections on life as a musician. Tracks like “Loved” are heartfelt pledges to Neumann’s children, reflecting the love he missed in his own upbringing. Looking ahead, Neumann aims to bring people together through their music, creating a space for audiences to momentarily forget their worries during gigs. BoDeans’ “4 The Last Time” encapsulates Neumann’s journey, reflecting on life, love, and the power of music to connect people.
