Not only have local garage masters Mudhoney remained a band for 25 years, they’ve managed to do so without succumbing to the jazz-fusion ambient dance phase, dabbling in Auto-Tune, or replacing their original members with Peter Gabriel. Their first album since 2008 (and ninth full-length total), Vanishing Point is still as wry and dry as ever—Mark Arm rips into such topics as downtown douchebags, his disdain for all things grandiose in the music biz, and sycophants at the grocery store. Phew, Mudhoney still sound like Mudhoney! (Disclaimer: I helped shout some backup vocals on this record.) (Neumos, 925 E Pike St,, 8 pm, $15 adv, 21+)
