The Stranger Suggests…
The Legendary Pink Dots
(MUSIC) It’s been just over 25 years since these London loons got together to make extraterrestrial pop that vacillates between dark psychedelia and childlike dreamscapes. Their latest release, Your Children Placate You from Premature Graves, continues that tradition. For anyone disenchanted by the formerly great Flaming Lips’ current preference for supermodels and cartoon characters, the Legendary Pink Dots are a heady, pleasantly challenging respite. With Hypatia Lake and Eric Lanzillotta. (Chop Suey, 1325 E Madison St, 324-8000. 8 pm, $13.50, 21+.) HANNAH LEVIN
