Our Lady Peace

Our Lady Peace arose in the sweet ambiguous time where literally any music that wasn’t hip-hop, metal or country was classified “alternative.” From Smashing Pumpkins to Tool and even bands like Third Eye Blind and Our Lady Peace, “alternative” music was the laziest way for industry people to say, “Hey, this isn’t Backstreet Boys or Wu-Tang Clan.” Sounding like they could probably be on tour with bands like Collective Soul and Eve 6, Our Lady Peace formed in Toronto in the early '90s and quickly experienced success which, contrast to many of their Canadian rock counterparts, continued to thrive on through the 2000s. The band is on tour in support of their new album Somethingness which will be released in the form of two EPs. The first volume (released back in August) actually sounds pretty good, which is relatively surprising for a band from the ’90s and a testament to the quality songwriting of frontman Raine Maida. $33-$44, 7pm, Aztec Theatre, 104 N. St. Mary’s St., (210) 812-4355, theaztectheatre.com. – Chris Conde
