    The psychedelic desert folk of Decker. blows into Soda Bar on Wednesday.

    Shoegaze pioneers Swervedriver hadn't released a new record in 17 years. Until now. The band is back together and touring, and though frontman Adam Franklin has passed through the Casbah over the years, this is certain to be an incredible reunion. At press time, there were still some tickets left to see this Oxford band, but don't wait until tonight, because surely this show will sell out. Around town, the Irenic hosts an all-ages banger with Broods, which sold out some time ago, so if you're itching for live music, catch the New Orleans sounds of Galactic at Belly Up, or drop by Soda Bar for the intense desert sound of Decker.
