The Suburbs with Johnny Rey

Last year’s “Si Sauvage” was a refreshing return to recording after 27 years for the Suburbs, new-wave dance-rock mainstays who rank as one of Minnesota’s all-time great live bands. The project was clearly dominated by singer-keyboardist Chan Poling, but guitarist-singer Beej Chaney’s performance at the State Fair was encouraging albeit ragged, considering the ups and downs in his personal life. The ’Burbs return to clubland with kindred opener Johnny Rey, former guitarist/singer with the Flamin’ Oh’s and father of Doomtree DJ/producer Paper Tiger.Jon Bream
