Phoenix w/ Alt-J, Grouplove and Bastille

2401 W. Wisconsin Ave., Milwaukee, WI, 53233
The knock against French alternative rockers is that they essentially write the same song over and over again. That criticism is more or less fair, but man, the songs “Lisztomania” and “1901” from 2009’s sterling Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix were some of that year’s brightest, most joyful alternative singles, and “Entertainment” and “Trying to Be Cool” from this year’s Bankrupt! may scan as lesser copies, but they’re still plenty enjoyable. The foot-tapping group headlines the first night of FM 102.1’s Big Snow Show tonight, supported by experimental indie-rockers Alt-J; the merrily shouty ensemble Grouplove; and Bastille, a British alternative trio whose single “Pompeii” has received steady airplay from 102.1.
