Rock innovators
Considered to be one of the most influential bands of the late-1970s punk/new wave scene in America, Television is back together and on the road. The group's debut album from 1977, "Marquee Moon," is a bona fide classic: Its offbeat song structures and intricate two-guitar sound can be heard in a lot of today's indie rock. Television is led by singer-guitarist Tom Verlaine, with Bill Ficca on drums and Fred Smith on bass. Longtime Verlaine collaborator Jimmy Rip recently replaced original guitarist Richard Lloyd in the band. 8:30 p.m. Thursday, May 8, at Metro, 3730 N. Clark St., Chicago. $25. Go to metrochicago.com.
