Not so bigheaded 

BIG HEAD TODD & THE MONSTERS

7 p.m., Revolution. $15 adv./$20 d.o.s.

OK. First thing's first. Big Head Todd does not have an abnormally big Elephant Man-sized head. Or even an especially bigger-than-usual head. Lest you be disappointed. Formed in Colorado in the late '80s, rock outfit BHT&TM built their audience the old fashioned way — they toured ceaselessly and self-released albums. By 1993, the band's extensive audience earned them a record deal and production work from Prince homie David Z. “Sister Sweetly” eventually went platinum and spawned the hits “Circle,” “Brokenhearted Saviour” and, perhaps the group's biggest, “Bittersweet.” The band has performed steadily since, releasing albums, even after it lost its major deal, at a fairly regular pace. With its latest album, “All the Love You Need,” Big Head Todd is taking a nontraditional approach to promotion: They're giving the album away, hoping to attract new fans to their concerts. Something for nothing: http://bigheadtodd.com/alltheloveyouneed.
