THE ROSEBUDS, THE OTHER LIVES
9 p.m., Stickyz/$8 adv. $10 d.o.s.

The jury is still out on whether it's a good idea to play in a band with your better half. For every John and Yoko or Thurston and Kim, it seems there are several Lindsey and Stevies or Meg and Jacks or Richard and Lindas. Kelly Crisp and Ivan Howard started the Rosebuds in North Carolina shortly after they were wed, and the prolific band has earned some good reviews across several albums and EPs. But by 2009, their marriage had been failing for "two albums, maybe longer" according to the band's Merge Records bio, and they split. The good news for fans of strident boy/girl indie pop is that while their marriage is over, Crisp and Howard opted for joint custody of the band. To be sure, the latest Rosebuds offering, "Loud Planes Fly Low," is a break-up album. But "Blood on the Tracks" it ain't.

    You've got to figure that a band from frozen-ass Winnipeg is just gonna be way gnarlier and tougher than a band from some sun-kissed tropical clime where people wear tank tops and flip-flops year-round.
